I first heard about Michael Dibdin's books through the series on public television. They turned three of the Zen novels into a miniseries which we thoroughly enjoyed. I thought I might try another and am so glad I did. The Venetian, as he calls himself, is a fascinating character and if you've ever been to Venice, this book takes you there again down all of the little winding streets , across the bridges.....and of course there is the murder mystery to solve. A thoroughly enjoyable book. The other Aurelio Zen books are set in Rome, but Zen always reminds us that he is a Venetian at heart. Indeed!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Even if you've never set foot in Venice, you'll feel you are an insider in the city after reading Dead Lagoon. The details are supurb. The characterizations are intricate and feel real.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
