After a month of high fantasy, it’s time to read some crime fiction. I was gifted a copy of Ashes in Venice for my honest review, so let’s get to it.
Frank Savic has a lot on his plate. He is deeply in debt and has family problems to boot. He wanted to retire, but then a vigilante killer, with an agenda of his own, changes his plans.
My Thoughts on Ashes in Venice
Ashes in Venice is not a light read by any means. It’s gory and disturbing. I don’t normally get grossed out, but I did with this one. So keep that in mind before picking it up.
There are also a lot a lot of viewpoints packed into this relatively quick novel. It took me a while to figure out how they were all connected. Once I got a solid idea of who the characters were I started to enjoy the story.
The author done an awesome job at setting up a motive and hinting toward it without giving too much away. But I did find their writing style to be overly descriptive. Almost to the point of being distracting. However, I did think it was a pretty solid thriller overall.
My Rating: 3/5
