Summary

The Pierced Patron of the Pastiche in Peschiera: The Lake Garda Mysteries, Volume 9

Twenty-year-old amateur sleuth Kim is summoned by her fiancé in the Carabinieri to once again come to their aid in solving an excruciatingly difficult case. An innocent woman has been brutally murdered, and the only credible suspect, her husband, has a solid alibi. Having exhausted every lead and route of enquiry, the forces of law and order reluctantly turn to their last resort, and appeal for assistance from that most unlikely of sources, Kim. In her usual chaotic and sociable style, Kim sets out on her noble quest for justice. Once she is on the trail, it is inevitable that the culprit will be cornered and caught. There may be a few deviations along the way, and even some comedic situations, but she will collar her villain in the end.

Another great book

I’ve only recently discovered this author, I have binge listened to all her audiobooks.
They’re excellent, characters you love or hate, thrilling plots.
You can’t go wrong.
I’m looking forward to listening more about the author in the future.

This is the second novel I have listened to by KT

Despite that it's a hard-to-put-down audiobook, my work got too busy to finish the last 30% when things were happening fast in the story. Two weeks later, I started rereading from the beginning, to refresh & try to guess the outcome. It was as good the 2nd time as the first! Sometimes refreshing details can get tedious, but not with this book. And while I did put a few things together at the 2nd read-through, I could never have guessed the outcome.

I am enjoying this novel

Fell in love with K T Ashbourne audiobooks - listen to one and you'll devour them all. Now I pre-order whatever he writes and I was not disappointed with this, his best series The Lake Garda Mysteries. It's a tangled, twisted, convoluted roller coaster mystery ride and once started very difficult to put down. Intriguing characters and a story that will keep you guessing and still surprise you at the end. If you're not listening to K T Ashbourne you should be.

Usually not a fan of crime thrillers

I bought this audiobook based solely on another series (Never Forget Him) by the author. Normally crime thrillers are not thrilling for me. I was surprised at how good such an audiobook can be! I listen to it in one sitting...until 2 a.m. That alone is the best review I could possibly give! I knew I would suffer getting up in the morning but the book was so good, I was willing to pay the price. I can not recommend it enough. Thank you, Claire Nicholls, for another great series!

Another audiobook by KT Ashbourne that I loved!

An excellent antidote for reality! Which is the greater mystery: an innocent woman has been brutally murdered, and the only credible suspect, her husband, has a solid alibi. How Kim solve this case!

An extremely thought provoking book

I have listen everything this author publishes as his books are always welcome friends. But this one stands alone. It is a wonderful story with twists and turns sure to keep you guessing. The characters are so real I felt as though I actually knew them and throughout the story are the pieces of wisdom for which the author is known. loved so much. I did not want this book to end, but I couldn’t put it down so the end came too soon! Going for the next one.

Fun!

no-gratuitous-erotica, LGBT, murder-investigation, situational-humor, verbal-humor, amateur-sleuth, Italy *****

If you thought that the alliteration of the title was twisty, the plot is even more so! Once again Kim is called upon as amateur consultant in a case of murder that the Carabineri can't prove, and Kim winds up with more money, another business, and two more cars! Great fun and fascinating sleuthing once again! Of course I loved it!
Claire Nicholls continues to be excellent as narrator and doesn't even chortle!
