"In the seventh Lady Emily mystery, Emily and her husband, the dashing Colin Hargreaves, are called to Venice by Emily's estranged childhood nemesis, Emma, whose father-in-law has been murdered and whose husband has fled. The list of suspects is complicated by the long-lost ring found on the victim's body. In this enveloping mystery built on strong characters, a multilayered plot, and lush descriptions, Bianca Amato portrays the elegant and capable Lady Emily as she navigates her way through nineteenth-century Venice's physical and social landscape. Amato's crisp accents and varying pitch distinguish the many characters, men and women alike, enabling intimate conversations and heated confrontations to unfold naturally. Even during moments of suspense, Amato never misses an opportunity to relish in Emily's wry observations and quick wit, endearing the heroine to listeners. A.S. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
