The Seventh Sacrament
By David Hewson
Murder and mystery set in Rome, The Seventh Sacrament is the fifth title in the Nic Costa series, David Hewson’s stunning Italian crime novels.Tweet
An intricate plot, an obsolete sect, students being students and a university archaeology professor who has secrets, this mystery has them all. Subterranean Rome has many hidden places and this novel travels their depths. Alessio was only seven when he disappeared but was he dead? The underground temples and passages gradually reveal some of their secrets. Not all, and there are twists and turns aplenty. A good holiday read.
