Dante's Numbers Summary

Dante's Numbers by David Hewson

Dante's Numbers is the seventh in the Nic Costa series, David Hewson's detective novels of love and death in the Eternal City.

Allan Prime looked ready to die of fright, even before the bright, shining spear with the blood-soaked tip reached his head . . .

The death mask of the poet Dante is to be exhibited at the premiere of a controversial new film, Inferno. But at the grand unveiling this priceless artefact is replaced by a macabre death mask of the film's star, Allan Prime. Minutes later the leading actress, Maggie Flavier, is threatened before her attacker is shot.

Nic Costa and his team are sidelined from the investigation in Rome and follow the movie to its next showing in San Francisco, hoping to recover the stolen death mask.

But in California confusing new clues suggest that there is more behind the killing than a crazed Dante fan. With the authorities distracted by false leads, can Costa protect Maggie, find the truth and stop the killer - all before life imitates art?

Dante's Numbers Reviews

[Hewson] is a talented writer with the gift of creating a good, old-fashioned page-turning thriller. His characters shine with real depth and conviction and the plot is breathtakingly imaginative. A superb read. * Reading Post *
Elegant . . . solid writing and multidimensional characters command attention from start to finish of this smart, literate thriller. * Publishers Weekly *
A fast-paced crime novel that's five-star from start to finish. * Irish Examiner *
David Hewson should be commended for writing such a page-turner of a book . . . The Killing has enough twists and turns to satisfy not only any avid follower of the series but also readers that are coming to it first time around. * *
Imagine the deceptively relaxed atmosphere of Donna Leon's novels mixed with the darkness of Ian Rankin . . . excellent. * Ink *
