    1. The story in it self seems very interesting and sports a mysterious plagueship that turns out to be a ship full of murdered people, what seems to be autamatons and a relic of a virgin from Antioch, who stille seems to be very much alive even though she was cut in half by her father to prevent the islamic horde ravaging her All in all it sounds very promising does it not But it really isn t The promising foundation for a hell of a mystery novel is utterly spoiled by the way it is written or maybe [...]

    2. Senz altro ben scritto I colpi di scena non mancano, le descrizioni sono vivide, il ritmo sempre serrato, e in alcuni momenti la tensione davvero alta, non si pu fare a meno di proseguire la lettura bisogna a tutti i costi svelare il mistero Per Dante Alighieri come investigatore uomo d azione trecentesco lo trovo poco credibile, e sfruttare elementi para esoterici tanto in voga ultimamente templari, mistero di Castel del Monte, alchimia, segreti pseudoreligiosi, et similia per costruire una sto [...]

    3. I quite liked it, but at the same time, I found the plot quite hard to follow I m not really sure of the quality of the translation, either that might have helped with making it hard to follow Also, not that this is really mentioned anywhere on or in the book, but apparently it s part of a series It was interesting enough to keep reading, for the solutions, but something about it failed to get me really invested in it.

    4. This is book 3 of Giulio Leoni s Dante Alighieri series and the books just keep getting better with each volume that I read This again, was a fascinating metaphysical mystery from which I hardl was able to tear myself away I am very much looking forward to reading the next in the series.

    5. Set in Renaissance Florence,the poet and Prior of the city,Dante takes a break from writing The Divine Comedy,to solve a multiple murder mystery As the murders continue Dante has to confront a mystery involving alchemy,religion and science.

    6. non ce la faccio, davvero Chiss cosa mi aspettavo quando ho comprato questo libro Dante il peggior investigatore della storia un personaggio che non riesce ad appassionare il lettoreonsigliato davvero

    7. It was so bad that if my teacher didn t give me to read it i d probably burn it after the firt 20 pages.

    8. Ugh Why did I even force myself to finish this A appropriate name for the book would be much ado about nothing Finding it hard to think of anything I have read that is worse than this

    9. Edizione Il Giallo Mondadori n 2924 12 4 2007 con in appendice il racconto di Stefano Marinucci Il maestro delle soffianti , vincitore del concorso Profondo Giallo 2006
