A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword'

It seems I wasn't the only one waiting to read the rest of this story.
I love the characters in this book. They are believable as is the storyline.
I enjoyed all the surprises and there are a quite a few especially at the end. It's a rollercoaster ride as it's written from the inspector's perspective.
You can see him mentally deteriorating as time passes. His guilt comes across very well which makes him a 'real' person. It isn't predictable and that's another thing I liked. I recommend this book to those that enjoy mystery and suspense.
It is written simply and the author is a great storyteller.

It's a pity this wonderful story and exceptional piece of writing seems to be lost among the many books here at Smashwords. I would strongly suggest that the author publish a compilation of short stories into one book.
Excellent read and highly recommended.

Excellent piece of work. Thought provoking with deep meaning and good lessons.
The multi cultural aspect enhanced the story. Couldn't give any less than 5 stars.
