Resenhas

A very standard mystery. A little bit of history, a little bit of art, likeable enough characters and a nice background story at the monastery

It is interesting that I admired this book more than I enjoyed it. Everything was perfectly ployyed and masterfully put together, and yet it left me cold. I wonder if anyone else had that reaction?
