Praise
"Ms. Leon, who teaches English on an American military base outside Venice, writes in a supple style that bends itself gracefully to Brunetti's moods."
"Very smooth, very stylish, very satisfying."
From the Publisher
Annotation Italian cop Guido Brunetti investigates the murder of a museum curator who had secretly been selling the museum's wares.
Editors Note In Leon's fifth Commissario Guido Brunetti mystery, the beating of renowned art historian Dotoressa Brett Lynch draws the contemporary Venetian police detective out of his warm and loving home and into the yearly onslaught of acqua alta, the torrential winter rains.|Brett, an American who spearheaded a recent exhibition of Chinese pottery in Venice, lives with her lover, Flavia Petrelli, the reigning diva of La Scala. With his open mind and good sense, Brunetti finds himself more fazed by Flavia's breathtaking talent than by the nontraditional relationship between the two women. Brunetti's deliberate and humane investigation to uncover a motive for Brett's beating takes him to dark, wet corners of Venice and into a sinister web of art theft, fakery and base human desires.|?Every fan?s first-pick Brunetti novel.? ?The New Yorker||?Music and art mingle delightfully with murder and mayhem in the course of this very engaging story.? ?Pittsburgh Post-Gazette?A subtle study of emotion and character? A sophisticated mystery.? ?Library Journal|
