Praise for Deadly Paradise

Winner of the BookPage “Tip of the Icepick” Award

“The likes of Donna Leon, Magdalen Nabb and David Hewson are joined by Grace Brophy, author of an outstanding new series featuring handsome Commissario Alessandro Cenni of the state police.”
The Denver Post

“Brophy not only has found in Umbria a fresh setting for Italian crime fiction, but she has also created a character in Cenni, who combines the beguiling personal flaws, slumbering sex appeal, and mysterious detachment of David Hewson’s Leo Falcone and Nic Costa.”

“Brophy has a fine budding series here, with winning characters and settings that include Venice and Murano as well as Umbria, and the ongoing Chiara subplot will have readers anticipating the next installment.”
Library Journal

Midwest Book Review
