Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The detective’s humane police work is disarming, and his ambles through the city are a delight; but it is this peculiar insistence on turning every case into a morality tale that gives Leon’s fiction its subtlety and substance and makes us follow Brunetti wherever we must—even into the sea.”         New York Times
“David Colacci’s performance adds color to Leon’s intricate plot and fascinating characters. He is careful that Brunetti; his brilliant wife, Paola; the beautiful computer hacker, Signorina Elettra; and faithful Inspector Vianello speak with only the slightest hint of Italian accents, enough to locate the story but not enough to turn characters into caricature.” AudioFile
“Leon, as always, looks for nuance behind the formula. She finds it in the victim’s relatives, all severely flawed figures but all sharing a bedrock humanity that resists caricature, and, of course, she finds it in Brunetti’s lovingly detailed but never sentimentalized family life—always the greatest source of pleasure in a series that reminds us again and again just what ‘character-driven” really means.” Booklist
“Following Brunetti on the case is like watching drops of water wear away stone, though it’s clear there’s no hope for the more general petrifaction of Venice that Leon masterfully tracks.” Kirkus Reviews
