5-Stars Review

Wow! This book is a mixture of many things, there is mystery, thrill, romance, drama, danger, beautiful and interesting places and characters. In other words it is a book in which everyone can find something to like. at first the story moves slowly but after a while it picked pace and moved smoothly onwards.
There are many characters whose lives are intertwined in subtle way. At first connection may not be so clear but by the end of the book all of them come together. seemingly random events leads to a single place....
There are Delia and John, both very much in love and are in Italy to enjoy some time together. Then there is a coniving Countessa, who is plotting a dangerous deception that might lead to her won destruction...
Princess 'V' and Charles seems to be playing with fire, nothing good can come out of their affair. It will only end in scandal and heart-break...
Karl and Luca, two teenage boys who are way over their heads, putting not just themselves but people around them in danger...
Everyone has a story of their own, well-told and highly entertaining. This book kept me on my toes through out. Suspense was too great and it was hard for me to put it down without finishing it.
