How delighted I was to hear David Colacci narrating this series again. His performance is perfect, as always. But the story is too brief by far, and it ends so abruptly I was caught completely off-guard. Ms. Leon left me sorely missing the familial warmth of earlier mysteries and the wonderful and wry humor of Senorina Electra, along with the many other riches of most Guido Brunetti stories. It is still a 5-star listen, but be prepared for an almost breathless pace compared to the slow and steady soulfulness and the intelligent and cultured ruminations we've come to expect from Comissario Brunetti!

Leon keeps on doing it, and keeps on doing it well. As usual, she starts with some small fact of life, and drop by drop builds a sandcastle that can withstand all waves, based on a current social issue or perhaps even a trial. Her characters are believable and stay so from one book to the next, becoming people you know and usually like. Her stories are solid in themselves and do not depend on gratuitous sex or violence. its not that there isn't a dead body or two or that married or unmarried people sleep together, but if so, it's part of the tale that will keep you reading to the end. Perhaps you will reread even more than once.
