Like all the Brunetti books, this is billed as a mystery, but it is not so much as mystery as a meditation on language. It opens with the Brunetti family playing a game at dinner using language and ends a non-conversation with the suspect. In between the two is the death of a deaf mute man. I think this is best Donna Leon is a while.
Her stories, which she said in a reading I went to, are triggered by things she reads in the paper, are unconventional mysterties. Yes, there is a police investigation, but it rarely ends in arrest. One is left instead to consider the consequenses of what happened and the suspect is left to live with (or in some cases not) the knowledge of what they did. The stories reflect the uncertainty of our time. We want certainty but often don't get it.
This is another beautifully craft book by Leon. I hope she keeps writing.

I was disappointed that David Collaci isn't the reader for Leon's new audio. Not enjoying it much so far. The new narrator has a much-too- heavy British accent.

    Touching read.

    Of all the Donna Leone books I have read, I found this one the most poiniant.
    I didn't see a connection to the title, though.
    The ending was very satisfying.

She might try visiting somewhere else on vacation with a murder and he can help out with the Italian suspects how about england or better yet Norway and that town by the artic circle with the polar bears in the suburbs someone needs a sabbatical
