I'm a huge fan of both Donna Leon and David Colacci. This audiobook is one of his best narrated versions. There are two parallel stories, and as usual, there is no clear resolution, but the end is breathtaking. The narrator perfectly captures the tenor of life in heat-ridden Venice. The avvocato's robes, hanging from his arm as he leans toward the window, trying to get air at the end of a court case, the interior of the restaurant selling those deliciously described tramezzini (sandwiches), and most importantly, a bird-cage filled, wine-racked storage cupboard in the courtyard of Venetian palazzo, will always stay with me.
Listening to this book is like taking a real, highly evocative trip to Venice. Even better than a real trip, you get a feel for every day life of the local. And at a huge discount ;)

The book moves at an agonizingly slow pace. It's apparent up front what the ending is. And not much scenery.
