On a spring day in Venice, Commissario Brunetti and his assistant Vianello play hooky to help Vianello’s friend Marco Ribetti, arrested during an environmental protest. They secure his release, only to be faced with the fury of the man’s father-in-law, Giovanni De Cal, who has made violent threats against Ribetti. Brunetti’s curiousity is piqued, and he finds himself drawn to investigate. Is De Cal the type of man to carry out his threats? When the body of De Cal’s bookish night watchman is found in front of the blazing furnace, he wonders: Could the old man have killed him?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“No one knows the labyrinthine world of Venice or the way favoritism and corruption shape Italian life like Leon’s Brunetti…the thoughtful Venetian cop with a love of food, an outspoken wife, and a computer-hacker secretary who plays man Friday to his detective.” Time
“One of the best of the international crime writers is Donna Leon, and her Commissario Guido Brunetti tales set in Venice are at the apex of continental thrillers.” Rocky Mountain News
“Every character, every line of dialogue, every descriptive passage rings true in a whodunit that’s also travel essay, political commentary and existential monologue. And the middle-aged, happily married Brunetti remains unique—an everyman who’s also extraordinary.” Publishers Weekly
“Satisfying as always” Booklist
“Leon shows once more why she has no serious rivals in the art of unfolding mysteries in which the killer’s identity is the least interesting detail.” Kirkus
