I really enjoyed this book, and was quite confused that the only 2 other reviewers had reviewed it so lowly (without written explanation). It was set in an era and a political situation (Trieste 1910ish) i haven't paid much attention to, so found it very interesting. I hope the rest of the series are similar!
I really enjoyed 'A Dead Man in Istanbul' but was disappointed with this story. The narration is clear but flat as though the narrator is simply stating events for an insurance claim. The story line is much weaker and the clues difficult making the ending appear unrealistic as though the author has had enough of writing and suddenly decides to conclude the story. The ending is far too neat with no loose ends as the main character 'ties' everything up explaining away every happenstance.
The characters are stereo-typical and the narration makes them seem even more mundane and the actual investigation something that the author elects to allude to now and again.
