Book Review: "Book 4: Cattoretti's Return" (Mike Wells)

Giorgio Cattoretti, the counterfeiting genius and criminal mastermind from earlier in the Lust, Money & Murder series by author Mike Wells, resurfaces in Book 4: Cattoretti's Return, which details his fall from grace, so to speak, and how he manages to prove his own maxim: that "The Cat always lands on his feet."

His determination to recover his wealth and prestige drives him to survive and, even more than that, to thrive and then get even with those he blames for his fall ... including Elaine.

Rarely has an antagonist (slash villain) fascinated me in a series as much as Cattoretti does. His twisted yet eminently logical (to him) system of values and the way in which he seems to anticipate his enemies' maneuvers with an almost clairvoyant capability make him tremendously compelling, well worth the read from his perspective.

What would a villain do if he'd lost his entire kingdom for which he'd spent his life working to establish himself as a more than worthy opponent to his enemies? What subsequent actions would he take?

This fourth book in Wells's series explores just those questions through Cattoretti's eyes as he acts, no less methodically than before and with the kind of single-mindedness that will send shivers down readers' spines.
