Captivating mystery of The Light in the Ruins

The Light in the Ruins - Chris Bohjalian

This was my first Chris Bohjalian book and I'm really glad I've been introduced to his writing. The Light in the Ruins is a fascinating mystery that plays out in Italy between 1955 - the time of the murder, and 1944 - the reason for it. 

He brings an incredible amount of detail to his historical fiction and I found it fascinating to read about the last days of the war and how the Nazi's actions affected the Italians who were torn in their support for Mussolini. Even though Bohjalian warns us up front about many of the tragic events to unfold, living through them was a brutal and heartbreaking experience. Quite the gorgeous story.
