Description

Donna Leon's Commissario Guido Brunetti series grows more popular in America with the publication of every new novel. In this installment, Brunetti's hopes of a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Marghera--a body so badly beaten the face is completely unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the corpse, but he is met with a wall of silence. Then he receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information. And before the night is out, Brunetti is confronting yet another appalling, and apparently senseless, death.

Review quote

The sophisticated yet still moral Brunetti proves a worthy custodian of timeless values and verities. ("The Wall Street Journal") Brunetti... the most humane sleuth since Georges Simenon s Inspector Maigret... is a decent man [who achieves] a quiet heroism. ("The Philadelphia Inquirer")
