KIRKUS REVIEW

Boston social climber Robert Booth, visiting Florence in 1855, wins an introduction to Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning but loses his former lover Isabel Eakin, whose murder introduces this teasing, intricate epistolary novel from versatile Dibdin (A Long Finish, 1998, etc.), which mingles fact and fiction, settling somewhere in the marshy middle.
