Earphones Award Winner

by Donna Leon | Read by David Colacci

Mystery & Suspense • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Commissario Guido Brunetti of the Venice Police makes his 14th appearance in BLOOD FROM A STONE. Donna Leon takes listeners into the Venice underworld this time. It’s Christmas, and Brunetti is called to investigate the death of an African street vendor. Brunetti and his faithful sidekicks, Signorina Ellatra and Sergeant Vianello, discover illegal immigrants, drugs, and political corruption. David Colacci’s narration adds nuance to Leon’s subtlest textual hints. Colacci changes voices, accents, and rhythm with a master’s ease. He turns Brunetti into a diligent detective still able to have a believable family life. Contemporary Italy, holiday time, violence, and crime all blend to make this a sure win for new Brunetti fans and a must for old friends. S.J.H.
