Early one morning Guido Brunetti, commissario of the Venetian police, confronts a grisly sight when the body of a young man is fished out of the fetid Venetian canal. All the clues point to a violent mugging, but for Brunetti robbery seems altogether too convenient a motive. Then something very incriminating is discovered in the dead man's flat, something which points to the existence of a high level cabal - and Brunetti becomes convinced that somebody, somewhere, is taking great pains to provide a ready-made solution to the crime...In the second of Donna Leon's award-winning Commissario Brunetti novels, Brunetti is as fallibly human - and Venice as mysteriously beautiful - as Donna Leon's many loyal readers have become to expect.

Donna Leon has a way of taking you to Venice, leading you through the streets and solving crimes that seem impossible. ALWAYS a good read!! We have been reading her since the beginning and look forward to each new creative work.

I enjoyed reading this new author. I was in Venice for 3 days in 2006, so this was fun and brought back some fun travel memories. I am looking forward to reading other Donna Leon books...it's interesting to get perspective on other countries via a good book.
