Con men, Nick and Clay, plan to sell fake silver to Clay’s rich ex-boyfriend in Venice, Italy in what they hope will be A Beautiful Crime.
This book is a slow languid dive into the atmospheric streets and palazzos of Venice. In fact, Venice was so much a part of the novel that it felt like one of the characters—if not the main one. The middle of the story slowed the pace considerably and I admit I might have skimmed a bit. However, the twisty conclusion was worth reading the book. 4 stars for grifter lovers everywhere for A Beautiful Crime—and book!
Thanks to Harper Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
