Hell is empty and all the devils are here

An electrifying thriller for fans of Harlan Coben and Michael Connelly.

Forced into retirement because of ill-health, Commissario DomenicoMartelli is hired to investigate a disturbing murder.
The case brings him into conflict with his former colleagues and into confrontation with a cruel and elusive killer.
Set in the breathtaking Ligurian countryside, ACQUA MORTA will keep you guessing until the very last page.
This is the first book i have read by Adam it will not be the last it a very good crime book I really did enjoy it

Adam very good with his description I could see some of the British countryside he was describing so well in my mind he paints a very good imagine you picture it all and Italy sounded so lovely i was transported there i can see all the sights in my head i was so there with them
Martelli the main character he was just about to become a retired detective he was looking forward to it or was he ?
He was called to his last murder case or scene the way Adam descried it in a very shocking way it was very detailed a bit too much for me but very good you could see it all in your mind
From that point the plot swaps from Kent to Italy it was a very complex story i enjoy how the two were interwoven it work so will it will hook you
The ending was very dramatic i was on the edge of my seat reading it what did you think?

All the characters worked well together they seem so real to me i had no clue to who the killer were did you?
The paced of the book just right I enjoy all the twists and turns it hold my interest it was so well written it flowed so easy it became a page turn i got to know what was going to happen next
As i said before Adam done a brilliant job of describing the surrounding areas and scenes it plays a bit part in the story he will pull you into the scene you there with them he got a very unique style about him
It a very clever and interesting story i really did enjoy
