Cutting Right to the Chase - Stefania Mattana
Cutting Right to the Chase by Stefania Mattana is a welcome respite from reading lengthy novels. The author has cleverly encapsulated Detective Chase Williams' life upon leaving Scotland Yard for Italy in six short stories. Each wonderful episode exudes charm Italian-style and left this reader wanting more. I especially enjoyed the shoplifting shorty as it reveals how crime can be under our very noses in the most mundane of circumstances.
Well done Stefania for accomplishing a difficult task with such panache and thoroughly entertaining me on so many levels. Can't wait to read book #2!
A FIVE STAR mystery compilation and highly recommended.
