A book in the historical mystery impinging on the present mode though this has a present in the past as well. Linking
Lucca and London and holy relics, it should have been better than it was. The references back to the past may have
been better placed as a preamble rather than being scattered. Admittedly, I prefer straightforward narrative as do most
but this is certainly a book that would have been better had it gone from then to the now if the book in a single line.
I also found that some of the main characters were a little unbelievable.
