True to the series, this one has a little exrea touch and interest because of the topic and the sensitive way the author treats it. The Roms in Italy are not much different than the latin immigrants found in this country. Donna Leon continues to demonstrate her talent for good narrative, character enhancement and vivd descriptions of her beloved Venice.

I love reading Ms. Leon's mystery books. Her books have a nice balance between murder-mystery plot, scenery of Venice, and a pleasant family and work life of Brunetti. I find myself absorbed in another world - in Venice - as I picture the cafes, streets, and buildings Ms. Leon describes in her books. I would love to see the Brunetti series turn into a PBS TV mini-series. That would fit right in with PBS's Mystery Theatre TV shows - and it would be a refreshing change! Thank you for allowing me to escape to another world - bringing back memories of my childhood when I visited Venice with my family and later when I went there while studying abroad during my college days! I never experienced a murder-mystery there in real life, but I am enjoying reading about them in Ms. Leon's books. They are not too heavy with violence and gore. It's very pleasant reading. Please continue to write...I appreciate your creativity and characters.

I usually like Donna Leon's books. This one had a very unsettling ending. She let me down by not getting justice.

I wouldn't call it compelling, but it did keep me coming back.

This was my first Donna Leon book and despite the smattering of anti-American comments it was quite interesting and very well written. It had a softness about it which I found intriguing for a murder mystery. The ending was a nice realistic surprise.

Having visited Venice, I love the environment and atmosphere of these novels. Always fun to read with real life characters.
