Sounds like a fascinating setting! I’ve read a couple of books set in the Chicago World’s Fair – not crime though – and loved all the detail about what was involved. And all those vast numbers of people visiting would make a great background for a series of murders.
I thought the setting was quite well done, FictionFan. De Santis gives a solid sense of what Paris is like during the World’s Fair, and what Buenos Aires is like at that time, too. I think that’s one thing people don’t think about, really: how much detail, planning, and so on was necessary for those big expos. It must have been overwhelming!

Thanks for the intro, Margot, but not one with much appeal TBH. I have an aversion to historical crime fiction. I usually DO enjoy it when I read it, but I never really fancy it if that makes sense.
That makes a lot of sense, Col. Once you start something, you may enjoy it, but the thought of it is something different. And after all, no book is for everyone!
