About this title:
From the Back Cover:
?Dibdin has an abundance of gifts: bracing wit, the ability to wring unexpected poignance out of dark comedy, and a gift for striking imagery.? ? The Wall Street Journal
? And Then You Die will leave readers with a sly smile and a new appreciation for Dibdin?s versatility. . . . If you haven?t made Aurelio?s acquaintance, this is a great chance to dip your toe in the water.? ? Rocky Mountain News
?[ And Then You Die] has an abundance of food, wit and action, with enough mistaken victims falling dead around Zen to put him up there with Peter Sellers in his Pink Panther days.? ? Chicago Tribune
?Dibdin is a charming and amusing prose stylist with a subtle but deeply humorous delivery. . . . A charming novel.? ? San Jose Mercury News
?This is Dibdin?s eighth Zen novel, and none has been better.? ? The Boston Globe
?Dibdin [writes] with his usual arch style of ironic storytelling, offering a graceful tour of Italy?s beachfront pecking order, class tics and age-old pleasures and prejudices.? ? Washington Post Book World
?Michael Dibdin?s texture and detail transport the reader to an Italian beach resort, a prison island, [and] a pub-crawl in Iceland. Aurelio Zen?s finely tuned third eye and inner ear infuse this crime story with mysticism.? ? Charlotte Observer
?Dibdin has created an interesting alternative to the fast-paced, smart-assed, hard-boiled detective genre. His version is full of hidden half-truths, twisted, smiling, power-hungry authorities, and enough smoke and mirrors to keep you guessing?a modern take on the medieval mystery.? ? The Irish Times
?Dibdin is . . . [a] philosopher, methodically and subtly creating a picture of human nature at its most complex yet simplest. . . . The book holds the reader until the end.? ? Ashbury Park Press
?A classic mystery that easily captures the true essence of the crime genre.? ? The Anniston Star
?Dibdin?s trademark humor and dark wit is in good form. . . . An ingenious, over-the-top twist . . . sets the scene.? ? Portsmouth Herald
?The tightly woven style and dark characters echo those of Georges Simenon.? ? Toledo Blade
?Dibdin?s Zen novels effortlessly paint a sharper portrait of Italy than any guidebook, cookbook or academic history. . . . And Then You Die is more meditative than the other Zen thrillers, beautifully crafted and evocative, with the perfect balance of plot and rueful digression.? ? The Guardian (London)
