Description
A young woman returns from holiday to find her elderly neighbor dead on the floor, in this 20th case for Commissario Guido Brunetti of the Venice police. A heart attack seems the likely cause, but Brunetti takes a closer look and finds that she was part of an organization that cares for abused women, and had made her apartment a safe-house. Convinced that this is the lead he has been looking for, Brunetti is instead drawn into a decades-old story of lies and deceit that has blighted love and ruined lives, and claimed this innocent woman merely as its newest victim. Donna Leon crafts atmospheric yet realistic mysteries that reveal the contemporary Venice behind the mask of history and tourism. Pointed social commentary, depictions of everyday life, and political machinations (sometimes palpable, but most often lurking beneath the surface) mix with the mysteries at hand and Brunetti's love of his city, while Leon gives us a depth of character and plot all too rare in the mystery genre.

"Leon draws together multiple threads and a well-rounded cast.... With the steady, unsentimental style that has become her signature, Donna Leon keeps us hesitating until the last corner is turned."Times Literary Supplement
