Right now I’m on a marathon-read of Catherine Coulter’s latest series: A Brit In the FBI. The books are quite good mystery/thrillers. I’ve read the first two books and am now on Books #3 and #4 – The Devil’s Triangle. There’s a connection to something by Leonardo DaVinci. The opening features one of the world’s best jewel thieves, although I suspect she’s now focusing in on the DaVinci item:
Kitsune stood on the Rialto Bridge and watched the sun flash against the waves of the lagoon. She enjoyed the early mornings in Venice, before the summer crowds flooded into the city. She watched pigeons peck the ground for yesterday’s crumbs, watched a row of tethered gondolas bob in the heavy sea swell. There would be a storm soon—she tasted it in the air. She looked at her watch. It was time to go. Her client had instructed her to take a water taxi to the San Zaccaria dock, then walk to the house.
What do you think?
Would you keep reading?
