"Journey to the evocative streets of Venice as workmen uncover the body of the kidnapped son of one of Venice's most aristocratic families. Detective Commissario Brunetti has the capacity to sympathize with the most unworthy of victims and the drive to go beyond the obvious to expose the truth, uncovering the sins of even the most respected. While Samuel Gillies's reading drags at first, along with Leon's plot, Gillies soon finds an acceptable rhythm. Gillies's dignified baritone and calm, quiet sureness bring vintage character to Brunetti. The seventh of the Commissario Brunetti mystery series, this selection is also a touching story of the policeman's personal life as he considers what brings one true happiness. F.L.F.
