Narrator David Colacci's rambling pace is just right for the 28th mystery featuring the ever-philosophical Commissario Guido Brunetti. This time the Venetian police detective reluctantly agrees to investigate an old family friend, the wealthy and gay Gonzalo, who is about to adopt a much younger man as his heir. When Gonzalo dies and his close female friend is then murdered, Brunetti solves the crime while musing on the frailties of human nature. Colacci's Brunetti is gruff and has an understated Italian accent, while his wife and children speak more gently. Colacci switches seamlessly from the storyline to the conversations of the many locals and police officers of Venice. All in all, a delightful listen.
