"Leon ... has once again, apparently effortlessly, produced a wholly absorbing read." * Sunday Telegraph * "As usual, Leon's witty portrayal of modern Venetian life, and Brunetti's model marriage, are as entertaining as the working out of the whodunit. A joy from start to finish." * Evening Standard * "No one knows the labyrinthine world of Venice or the way favoritism and corruption shape Italian life like Leonas Brunetti . . . the thoughtful Venetian cop with a love of food, an outspoken wife, and a computer-hacker secretary who plays man Friday to his detective" * Time *
