Addictively creepy and brilliantly atmospheric is how I would sum up The White Devil. I can’t say I liked any of the characters however as a reader I was grabbed and intrigued by the plot and definitely entertained by the story line.
Vicki Wilson, or Vittoria as she and her brother have renamed her is a bad luck for her boyfriends. They keep turning up dead and she finds herself under suspicion with both the police and public. Controlled by her obsessive brother Johnny and soon enters the upper circles of Roman society, becoming a paparazzi darling and mingling with shady cardinals and corrupt senators.
If you want a classic noir read that takes you through the backstreets of Rome this is the book for you.
