    1 thought on “The Family Tomb”

    1. In Michael Gilbert's The Family Tomb (1969; aka The Estrucan Net) British expatriate Robert Broke finds himself in the middle of a far-reaching web of intrigue which has at its center the eccentric Professor Bronzini and Estrucan art. Broke left England behind when the British judicial system allowed the lorry driver who killed his wife and unborn child to get off with a mild fine for "dangerous driving" and has since spent his time running a rare book store in Florence. Broke is also something [...]

    2. Robert Broke moves to Florence after the tragic death of his wife and unborn child, and stumbles into a conspiracy to fake and sell Etruscan artifacts about which he knows far too much for the comfort of the crooks. His friends rally round to find out the truth.There's your generic capsule summary of the plot, and it's a good one, but oh, the characters are lovely, especially the expatriate English, as for exampleMiss Plant was, in every sense of the word, the leading lady of the English colony [...]

    3. Very interesting to read this since I have also been watching the Montalbano series as well. A highly detailed work is as focused on people as it is the crime. It gives a picture of not only crime, but the judicial system of Italy as well.Like Dickens, this story weaves through all levels of life and personality. It starts slow and methodical, but the devil is in the details. Yet another kind of mystery from Gilbert. Others I have read have involved more police dramas. This one involved more peo [...]

    4. Stogy but somewhat entertaining story of an English boookseller who is accused of murder in Florence. Lots of stock characters, the eccentric English-expat who knows more about Florence than the natives, the diplomat and his daughters who have no visible means of support, the evil Sicilian assassins, the Etruscan conoisseur who takes things too far.

    5. Is the professor finding Etruscan artifacts or is he faking them? Why was Milo killed? He knew something. But now the one person who could have spotted the fraud, if there was one, is in jail, and his friends have to investigate to get him out. Very good with a strong setting.
