Egad, this was awful! Tedious, drawn-out drivel. Jarring point of view, clichéd style, grating dialogue. Historical inaccuracies. Vile characters. Holes in the plot as wide as the Grand Canal. Pointless action, beginning with a sham engagement for which there's no plausible explanation. An unreasonable, self-indulgent, petulant "hero" and a weak, stupid, insipid "heroine" going back and forth endlessly over the same "dilemma" of whether to believe the other did or didn't commit the murder (before long we wish they'd kill each other and end our misery!), all the while indulging in contrived and graphic sex scenes the so-called author uses to justify a nonexistent "romance." This is a novel in no sense of the word. If it's being talked about, as Simon and Schuster claims, we're all talking about how bad it is. I've been a book editor for decades and it's one of the worst I've seen.
