Acqua Morta (Commissario Martelli) (Volume 1)
by Adam Bane

Book Description
An electrifying thriller for fans of Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly. Forced into retirement because of ill-health, Commissario Domenico Martelli is hired to investigate a grotesque and disturbing murder. The case brings him into conflict with his former colleagues and into confrontation with a mysterious and devious killer.

Set in the breathtaking Ligurian countryside, Acqua Morta will keep you guessing until the very last page.

Hubbie's Book Review
A novel which spans two continents and brings british and Italian police together to solve an interesting and puzzling case.

Meet Commissario Domenico, in my opinion Italy's answer to Scotland's Rebus.  Domenicos is recently retired and is then hired as a PI . Using his contacts, both in and out of the police force, this case takes him on a roller coaster of a ride with danger on every page.  When bodies appear both in Italy and England it brings together two officers investigating two separate cases.

Brilliantly written and touching on the human emotions the writer has created a detective whose lifestyle can be truly believed.  An easy to follow plot with excellent character portrayal's and brilliant descriptions of the little nooks and crannies in Italy.

An enthralling read which keeps the reader guessing and thinking, which is the bases of an impressive detective novel.
