I read this book about 29-Nov-2003. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1971. This note was last modified Monday, 05-May-2014 22:30:55 PDT.
This is book 26 of the "Roderick Alleyn" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
A darker (and longer) book where Alleyn is in Rome working on a drug case (and Marsh's view of drug cases is always pretty wacko), and gets involved in a related murder. A fair amount of local landscape and color, and another good romance plot in amongst the crimes.
