Having recently finished “The Idiot“, I coincidentally read another book about a fool.
A homeless man is murdered in a San Francisco park. Police Inspector Kate Martinelli heads the investigation. The chief suspect is the enigmatic Erasmus, a homeless preacher with a secret past, whose speech is a mix of quotations from the Bible, Shakespeare and other literary sources.
An intriguing crime thriller with insight into the role of the Fool through the centuries from St Francis of Assisi, through medieval jesters to the modern day.
My rating: 4 out of 5
