There’s a lunatic in Venice, cutting up women which Cass uses as an excuse to hang out with Falco. The way Cass acts would have got any decent Venetian girl locked up in a nunnery but she gets away with it because well, she just does. What is The Eternal Rose of the subtitle? Well it is not revealed, that is for the next two books in the series. I won’t be bothering. This seemed to have promise initially but was just ridiculous crap full of unlikeable characters and exposition dumps.
“Cass didn’t know much about the seemingly never-ending wars with the Ottomans.”
“They’re doing witchcraft there, or worse.”
“Satanists, if you ask me.”
