    MOBI David Hewson × × Lucifer's Shadow eBook ´ lucifer's pdf, shadow download, Lucifer's Shadow PDF/EPUBIt was OK but I like this author's Nic Costa mysteries better If you're looking for a well written suspense story check those out instead While this tried to be suspenseful and historical it missed it's mark and wasn't really either

    MOBI David Hewson × × Lucifer's Shadow eBook ´ lucifer's pdf, shadow download, Lucifer's Shadow PDF/EPUBTwo entertwined stories set several hundred years apart and connected by a violin This is a recipe I am a sucker for The descriptions of Venice are beautiful the pace uickens as the mystery unfolds it becomes hard to put down and the end payoff is great It's a happier ending than I would have expected and even the very last sentence is a surprise zingerSome people have complained about having difficulty following the two plotlines but I almost always enjoy this literary device of the parallel stories at two points in history that eventually cross The structure itself adds another layer of suspense because basically you know they'll cross but you don't know how The book also wove in cultural and musical history in a way that wasn't ostentatious but just seemed to soak in like the yellowing light of Venice Those who are familiar with classical music history at least in a cursory way will enjoy it And there's even a love story What co

    MOBI David Hewson × × Lucifer's Shadow eBook ´ lucifer's pdf, shadow download, Lucifer's Shadow PDF/EPUBI took out Lucifer's Shadow and Lizard's Bite both by David Hewson at the same time and read Lizard's Bite first as I had read the previous Costa detective book the Sacred CutI should have read Lucifer's Shadow first The Lizard's Bite follows Lucifer's Shadow Both books feature Hugo Massiter and Lizard's Bite mentions Daniel Forster and Laura who are featured in Lucifer's ShadowLucifer's Shadow is two related stories in one Like Hewson's other books the beginning is slow reading This one is even so as I found the 'letters' that tell the earlier story set in Venice during Vivaldi's time to be very slow and the italics didn't help on the eyes eitherIn Vivaldi's time an accomplished violinist is hampered by the fact that she is Jewish and women can't perfor

    MOBI David Hewson × × Lucifer's Shadow eBook ´ lucifer's pdf, shadow download, Lucifer's Shadow PDF/EPUBHe remembered to wear blackThis story promotes mood swings BIG time I'm not one for changing eras but will run along with the idea if it's done well This is not done well No indication is given at the start of a chapter just where we are expected to jerk our interest to and given that the modern story mimics the 'then' story and some of the names are the same it proves to be a tad annoyingThat said the story is at times truly brilliant reflecting that old philosophical mantra that everything repeats itself ad infinitum The snake eats it's own tale tailAs frustrating as this book is I finished liked it to a 35 and am even convinced that Venice is a scary place Lucky to have come out alive from my two visits

    MOBI David Hewson × × Lucifer's Shadow eBook ´ lucifer's pdf, shadow download, Lucifer's Shadow PDF/EPUBI read this book during November when I was up to my eyes with NaNoWriMo so I read it very slowly Perhaps this was the best way of enjoying this book It is a book that deserves time and attention It is beautifully written and I loved the 'past' and 'present' construction and all the fascinating parallels without giving too much away here I hope There are unexpected twists and turns in the plot that kept me hooked until the end A very satisfying read and a great ending too The descriptions of Venice are fascinating had me rummaging out guidebooks and checking flight prices I would love to know how David Hewson works does he plot intricately before he writes or does he let his characters lead? Must try to find out I look forward to reading David H

    MOBI David Hewson × × Lucifer's Shadow eBook ´ lucifer's pdf, shadow download, Lucifer's Shadow PDF/EPUBIt is especcially the atmosphere of Venice both now and a few century's ago that is so gripping in this 'adventure' Of course there are enough mysteries and even a murder or two on the shelf but it is the elegance and the beauty of the city tha
