Description from Amazon
ANGEL'S REQUIEM: CENTRAL PARK IS THE SCENE FOR THE MURDER IN THIS NYC MYSTERY/ An Aidan Bonner Mystery When Rico, the heir to an art fortune, dies a bizarre death at world famous Bethesda Fountain in NYC, it triggers a chase that leads a trio of investigators to the highest reaches of society in London, Venice and Rome. Characters like Ten PerCent Willie, Cardinal del Prince Castignini, and the impenetrable Marshams, as well as colorful street characters in New York City, Pittsburgh and London, fill the pages of Ms. Kindle's thriller, which is based on Venetian legend. Attorney Libby Cervallo, excop Aidan Bonner-a "make my day" kinda guy, join with David Eisenmann, M.D., a forensic pathologist, to get the facts. Vincent Nasi, the deceased's father, just wants to bury his body and avoid public attention. What lies behind his austere, businesslike facade? It spurs Libby to take Rico's part by refusing to let the investigation die. Angela Nasi, Rico's petite white-haired grandmother, provides Libby with riddles regarding the famous family that hint at supernatural influences of a heavenly type, and Libby is intrigued enough to put aside her lawyerly skepticism to follow the trail wherever it leads. Rico's murder triggers a series of crimes that draw the three friends deeper and deeper as the mystery unravels. The level of danger rises to red alert. However, nothing will deter his close friend, Libby, who will fight for the truth despite her recent battle with breast cancer. Aidan comes along to protect her and Dave wants to provide her with medical care should she need it. The truth is both are suitors for the same beautiful woman. Only one can win her love. A succession of clues lead the trio on a chase "that zigs and zags but rarely lags" according to one enthusiastic reviewer. Murder, mayhem and impending financial debacle force them to a breathtaking finish when the Angel sings her final requiem.
Overall Feedback: This is one mystery you do not want to miss. The author does a superb job with bringing together faith, intrigue, suspense and mystery. I was drawn in from the very first page and did not put it down until the last thrill was had.
Point of View: Rico tells it like it is.
Voice: The message is somewhat hidden but once you find it the meaning flashes through your mind like a bolt of lightening.
Character Development: Although there are several characters in this one the author does well to keep them orderly.
Plot: A thrill ride from beginning to end.
Dialogue: I saw no issues with the dialogue. Seemed natural and non forced.
Pacing: In a few spots the story seemed to slow down but the author was quick on the rebound.
Setting: We all know/suspect this is happening all the time.
Continuity: Just enough left out to make you salivate for the next one in the series (if the author so chooses).
