David Colacci's reading of this mystery is done with a slight Italian accent, which creates a feel of authenticity. His voice sounds thoughtful and strongly masculine, like that of Commissario Brunetti himself, who continues to have faith in humanity even though he is immersed in the politics and corruption that are rampant in this darkly portrayed city of Venice. Brunetti is called in on the case of the son of a reform-minded politician, who appears to have committed suicide at an exclusive military academy. The evil that Brunetti sees in the world is offset by his wife's philosophical and kind outlook, which Colacci portrays effectively with a softer voice. D.T.H.
