    DescriptionEarly one morning Guido Brunetti, Commissario of the Venice Police, confronts a grisly sight when the body of a young man is fished out of a fetid Venetian canal.

    Review quote
    "Brunetti ... long ago joined the ranks of the classic fictional detectives" Evening Standard "What makes Leon's work especially unnerving is the sense that corruption is a continuing process ... The characters of Brunetti and his family continue to deepen throughout the series" The Times
