I've been interested in this series for a while, so was happy to find this paperback copy of the first book in the series on one of the book-sale shelves at my sister's small town library just outside Boston.

Venice's canals have always been shrouded in mystery. But when the celebrated opera house, La Fenice, is the scene of a murder the Commissario of Police, Guido Brunetti, has to step behind the lights into the bitchy world of opera to investigate.

7 out of 10

Read this whole book yesterday and really enjoyed it - the actual whodunit I found a bit simplistic (perhaps I've read too many mysteries over the years) and I guessed most of it, but I love love loved the characters, the atmosphere and the location. Nice to see a detective with a good family life for once, and all the Italy references made me feel at home. I will definitely keep a look out for more books in this series.
