The Devil's Lieutenant is quite a perfect example of historical novel, because the author's understanding of its era and all sorts of details appears very credible. More importantly, the historical background of the novel was interwoven seamlessly into the story - or moreover, the story was born of its historical background. The reason why I wasn't entirely thrilled by the novel - even though it turned out to be a real page-turner and the writing is of excellent quality - is perhaps its report-like style. It deals with really big, dark and emotional issues, but somehow they were left a bit distant. Although I could feel for the characters, I couldn't feel them.
