    The Flood Epub Ù Kindle Edition flood ebok, The Flood PDFFirst in the Pino Fratelli and Julia Wellbeloved thriller series set first in the Florence of Fratelli's memories of the flood in 1966 and now in 1986 and revolving around a disabled detective and a postgraduate student and former lawyerThis ARC was sent to me by NetGalley and Severn House Digital for an honest reviewMy TakeIt's a strange book Part of that is my own fault as I started reading it thinking the male protagonist was from Hewson's Nic Costa series set in RomeInstead this is a two part thriller with the prima

    The Flood Epub Ù Kindle Edition flood ebok, The Flood PDFI have no idea what this book is about It is all over the place with un comprehensible names thrown in here and there Orgies that are not orgies unexplained events terrorists Going to past events that are poorly explainedA crusty old man who has issues which are never explained; concerned friends who do nothingA supposed love affair between him and a woman 20 years his juniorIt is a load of crock Dialogue is poor story line is a disaster theme is not thereNot worth the first pageNot recommended

    The Flood Epub Ù Kindle Edition flood ebok, The Flood PDFSet in Florence in 1986 twenty years after the catastrophic flood the book combines art history and criminal investigation and twenty years of Florentine politics and corruption in an engaging fashion The two protagonists detective Pino Fratelli on medical leave for a serious brain illness and his tenant English post graduate art history student Julia Wellbeloved are both appealing characters in a relationship that develops from strictly professional to something personal over the course of their investigationsFirst there is a minor bit of vandalism to a fresco which touches on Julia's research Pino is fretting at his enforced inactivity and starts poking around the edges much to the annoyance of his former boss and several wealthy and powerful figures The mayor invites Julia to a meet

    The Flood Epub Ù Kindle Edition flood ebok, The Flood PDFThe Flood is one of those books that has elements that will appeal to both art history fans and psychological thriller readers I was attracted to it because I was travelling to Italy this summer and it was an opportunity to be entertained while learning about the history of Venice particularly the devastating floods in the late 20th Century There is a very dark undercurrent to this book and I generally steer clear of novels that really unsettle me but Hewson's two protagonists are so appealing that I was totally drawn inThere is no shortage of mysteries featuring art theft or forgery but The Flood has a fresh approach It uses the works of art as clues to understand the actions and motivation of a very troubled person The initial crime was not significant but real creativity was reuired to see beyond the initial act of viol
