A review from Audiofile:

Mystery fans who are looking for a change of scenery and international ambience should get to know Guido Brunetti, commissario of the Venice police. Anna Fields deftly narrates this well-drawn plot of political corruption, murder, and drugs. Fields is at home in the city and canals of Venice. She brings forward the complexities of Brunetti's character, balancing his compassion and idealism with a tough cynicism born of many years experience with the bureaucrats and the powerful of Venice. Fields maintains a good pace for building the framework of clues that fit neatly together in unexpected ways. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Picked up from the massive pile of 'rescued books' from Unbalanced — it still smells a bit cigarettey, but is in excellent condition otherwise. Can't imagine why someone would just throw it out...

Anyway, I really like Donna Leon's work, and look forward to discovering this one. May give it a spray of perfume first though! :)

Journal Entry 4 by AussieNisi from Belconnen, Australian Capital Territory Australia on Monday, January 22, 2007
Ooops, I released this book before I wrote it's journal entry. Anyway. This is an excellent book.

I really enjoy Brunetti, the other regular characters that appear, finding out about daily Venetian life, and the various plots woven through this novel. It has a great sense of atmosphere.
