I enjoy a book that can run the gamut of my emotions and have me gasp when twists and turns are revealed.
Sweet Song, Bitter Loss by Paul Hencher, has done just that.
I was first drawn to the description of the book because it takes place in Abruzzo, Italy, where my mother's family is from, along a coastal town of Pescara.
Major D'Angelo is in charge of finding a missing boy. The case leads him and the other carabinieri along a twisting path of mystery and intrigue. There were many good characters and storylines in this book, and they all kept my interest. The mystery was well plotted and had me guessing right until the very end and the reveal.
I hope Mr. Hencher writes additional books. His storytelling and character development are done well, and I liked learning about the various towns and customs.
I would highly recommend this book.
