The Venice Conspiracy - Jon Trace I am willing to suspend disbelief, but this was too much of a stretch. Tom Shaman, the ex-priest protagonist, leaves his vocation behind, leaves his whole mind-set and way of life, changes not like a snake shedding a skin but more like someone picking out a plaid shirt instead of stripes in the morning before leaving the house. The rapid flashbacks to the Etruscan's, and back to the present, were so quick that it was not possible for me to get involved in either situation. The Etruscan figures seemed cartoonish, I cannot comment on the bulk of the book or the ending, just could not get past my disappointment with the first part of the book.
