I enjoyed this subtle and understated story which is far more in the vein of earlier Brunetti stories. While there are asides about environmental issues these do not dominate the story as recent episodes in this series have to done to their detriment, in my opinion.
Here are all the favourite series characters including Paola, Guido Brunetti’s forthright wife, his aristocratic in-laws and his police colleagues – Patta, Vianello and the inimitable Elettra with her mastery of all things computerised. Venice is, as ever, almost a character in the story providing an atmospheric background to theft and murder.
