In this part I tell you about my trip to Maiori in the South of Italy and to Amalfi and Positano.
We left on May 28 quite early and arrived about 6 in the afternoon (geez I was so tired!). We traveled all Italy long since I’m from the North and stopped a few times at the rest stops while on the highway.
Maiori is a small town on the coast and the streets to access the town, are not small, minuscule! If you’re used to American streets well… you probably have some problems driving there (I mean I’m used to Italian traffic and it was quite an experience for me too… I need to say we were on the bus so even worst!). The worst part was when we encounter cars from the other way and motorcycles surpassed us. I don’t know how many “almost-head-ons” we had. Anyway, after this scary drive we arrived at our hotel and had dinner (I never eaten so well during a vacation in a hotel as during this one, and I am very picky).

A new type of serial killer is stalking the streets of New York – one more devious and disturbing than ever before.
They call this butcher The Skin Collector: a tattooist with a chamber of torture hidden deep underground. But instead of using ink to create each masterpiece, the artist uses a lethal poison which will render targets dead before they can even entertain the prospect of escape . . .
Drafted in to investigate, NYPD detective Lincoln Rhyme and his associate Amelia Sachs have little to go on but a series of cryptic messages left etched into the skin of the deceased. As the pair struggle to discover the meaning behind the designs, they are led down a treacherous and twisting path where nothing is as it seems. And with the clock rapidly ticking before the killer strikes again, they must untangle the twisted web of clues before more victims – or they themselves – are next.
About the Book
I forgot how much I loved Lincoln Rhyme!
More I read, more I find out about my “genre”, I like mystery and crime books, that is obvious but I like when there are a few chapters dedicated to the killer. If it’s a serial killer even better. I love when the killer “plays” with the detectives but unfortunately I always choose wrong books… Continue reading “The Skin Collector”
