Guido Brunetti, of the Venice police, is a character American audiences will love--if only given a better chance to get to know him. Leon's series involving wonderful Venetian settings, food, and characters is hard to find in print and thus even more welcome as an audiobook. With very precise articulation Gordon Griffin leads listeners through Brunetti's investigation of a murder into the world of moneylenders and graft in Venice. He doesn't seem completely at ease with either the characters or the accents. He is, however, quite good with the women, including Brunetti's dynamic, independent wife, Paola. Friends won the British Crime Writers' Silver Dagger Award. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
