Ett fall på Capri

Ett fall på Capri Death on Capri

Murders Under the Sun #1

Sun, sea, food, wine – and then a mysterious death

History teacher Hugo travels on a food and culture trip to Capri together with a group of other northerners. The organizer is Belmonte Travels, led by the clever Lara. Spirits are high, and the group is enjoying all that paradise has to offer. But a shadow falls over the charming island when a body is found in the water below the infamous Salto di Tiberio cliff. Who is the dead man, and why does he have a Belmonte Travels brochure in his pocket? Has a snake crept into paradise, or is there perhaps someone among the travelers who is on Capri for other reasons than to experience the good things the island has to offer?

Reviews

  • “Rarely have I read a murder mystery that has made me so hungry: Delicious Italian food is described in captivating and detailed terms. I was struck by an irresistible craving for pasta, garlic, and olive oil. The first part of the de la Motte couple’s new series is like going on a charter trip, because at least half of the story consists of delightful sightseeing and Italian culture. For those of us who prefer to travel from the comfort of our reading chairs, it is perfect to visit Capri without having to endure the real fear of heights, sunstroke, and shoe chafing. The story itself is an enjoyable whodunit. ”

  • “It is cozy, delightful, and nicely done.(…) As readers, we get to enjoy beautiful gardens as well as Italian specialties on both the food and drink front while we ponder over the mystery. (…) All crime fiction readers who appreciate clever plots without too much blood and violence will love Anders and Anette de la Motte’s new concept.”

  • “In fact, the de la Motte couple are more balanced than most; after a while, even this hard-to-impress reader gets a craving for pasta. The reader is also on a journey; in addition to an educational introduction to local food, drink, and history, we get a little Italian phraseology at the end and a promise of a new trip next summer. ”

  • Death on Capri could very well have been written by Agatha Christie herself. The basic architecture of the series is deeply impressive, and the first part delivers entertainment at a really high level./…/  The story contains lots of delicious food, drinks, a lively environment, and many amusing details. (…) This is great entertainment; it feels like the de la Motte couple had a lot of fun along the way. The cliffhanger at the end is something to look forward to.”
