Publisher's Summary

Aurelio Zen returns to his native Venice to investigate the disappearance of a rich American resident but he soon learns that, amid the hazy light and shifting waters of the lagoon, nothing is what it seems. As Zen is drawn deeper into the complex and ambiguous mysteries surrounding the discovery of a skeletal corpse on an ossuary island in the north lagoon, he is also forced to confront a series of disturbing revelations about his own life.

We have found the perfect narrator for Zen and...

.... the publishers who really should know better, think any good narrator will do.


Cameron Stewart may be an OK straight reader and he totally fails to capture Michael Dibdin's Zen.

Especially as this is Zen returning to Venice.

It is not a more complicated plot, it is not a darker view of the world.

It is the total failure of Cameron Stewart to capture the nuance, the humour, the niavety of our world weary chauvinist, the blatent hypocracy and corruption that flatens the story and characters.

What would he do to 'Cosi Fan Tutti' ( I shudder to think).?

So far no one can best Michael Kitchen as narrator for Dibdin's Zen.
