    Om The White Devil

    TIN THE STREETS OF ROME, VICKI WILSON'S LOVERS KEEP TURNING UP DEAD. Vittoria, as she's known in Italy, is a small-time actress who left behind a dark past in her native Texas and followed her fading writer husband to the Eternal City. Guided by her controlling brother Johnny, Vittoria soon enters the upper circles of Roman society, mingling with shady cardinals and corrupt senators. Among them is Paolo Orsini, who quickly falls prey to Vittoria's charms. Too bad he's married; too bad his wife, an aging film icon, is murdered. From the ravishing beauty of Rome to the pristine beaches of Malibu, Vittoria finds herself at the heart of a lethal chase, spiralling dangerously out of control...

    Domenic Stansberry had the inspired idea of transposing The White Devil, John Webster's first great tragedy, to present day Rome, lacing it with aphoristic wit and recounting it in an eerie, shimmering flow. Excellent... Stansberry deserves to be better known... Menace, murder and eroticism lurk. Intoxicating... Rome is brilliantly captured, as is Italian society, but it is the tragic heroine and her flawed brother that linger in the mind. A glittering noir triumph... Brilliantly reimagined, fast-moving, aphoristic and recounted in a delirious, shimmering erotic flow, The White Devil is a possessed, fever dream of a book, an unwise third cocktail that proves impossible to resist. One of the classiest pieces of noir you'll read this year... It is atmospheric, deliberately ambiguous, vengeful, by turns sultry and icy in tone with a leading female character you want to trust but simply dare not. a wonderfully indulgent read with some surprising twists A wild ride... exceptional Freaking incredible Voluptuous and sharply delineated... the backdrop of sultry and crumbling Rome lends the whole story a hot and crackling ambience
