The Dead Season: A Mystery in Florence

'“I loved this book and hated putting it down. It manages to be both a taut thriller and a beautifully observed story of a young woman’s coming-of-age set in Florence in full flood. Michael Dibdin meets Muriel Spark.” —Allison Pearson, author of I Don't Know How She Does It “Kent delivers an ingenious country-house mystery here, complete with Agatha Christie byplay among the clashing characters and spiked by the ascerbic, witty presence of Cellini.” —Booklist “Cellini blends the disingenuous cleverness of a Columbo with Donna Leon’s Guido Brunetti. The sleuth’s ingenious detection of evidence pointing towards foul play portends a long and successful series run. Louise Penny fans will find a lot to like.” —Publishers Weekly"Kent brings her characters to rich and convincing life amid story lines full of subtlety and surprise. Florence, too, springs vividly from the page, evoked with sharp observation and an admirable absence of cliché." —Publishers Weekly'
