    This book was very gothic atmospheric and creepy A bit slow in the beginning but it picks up and then I just had to know what happened at the end I really liked the writing and this made me want to go back to Venice I was less in love with the pacing and found myself just wanting to get to it and find out what happens and why Gilly is the way she is and find out about the tangled web of her relationship with Frankie The pieces all click together at the end but there were numerous times that I was exasper
