FREE CHAPTERS FROM DANTE’S NUMBERS BY DAVID HEWSON

Hewson is known for his stylish, literate suspense writing and his ability to portray such lush settings. But don’t let that fool you into thinking he doesn’t provide some of the most gripping and twisted mysteries out there. His plots are always tight, his sense of history is mesmerizing and you’ll never be able to predict where the story is going to take you. DANTE’S NUMBERS is Hewson’s seventh novel to feature Detective Nic Costa; number six, The Garden of Evil, won the American Library Association’s Award for Best Mystery of 2008.

Here are the facts:
The hero: Roman Detective Nic Costa—son of an infamous Italian communist, connoisseur of Caravaggio, and too young looking to be such a skilled detective.

The situation: Celebrities and paparazzi have all come together for the screening of a long-awaited new film version of Dante’s Inferno.
But minutes into the event, chaos takes over—a man lies dead, a movie star is missing and priceless relic has vanished. In short, Nic Costa has his hands full with this case—and he’s going to have to leave Italy to solve it.

A small sampling: “He recalled Rome and a strange young actor dressed as a Carabinieri horseman, running through a performance that would lead to his death…. The links to Dante were everywhere, in the deadly cycle of numbers, the written warnings. The evidence.”

What others have said: “Hewson is a daunting talent — a writer who is a master stylist, who respects the audience’s intelligence and who effortlessly keeps the thrills coming a mile a minute.” -Jeffrey Deaver
