Commissario Guido Brunetti faces a moral dilemma. Ambitious, arrogant Lieutenant Scarpa has closed a vicious murder case. However, Brunetti discovers that the chain of evidence is missing several important links. Scarpa's sloppy police work draws the masterful Brunetti into conflict with higher-ups, forcing him to employ some not-quite-legal methods to solve the case. David Colacci's performance adds color to Leon's intricate plot and fascinating characters. He is careful that Brunetti; his brilliant wife, Paola; the beautiful computer hacker, Signorina Elettra; and faithful Inspector Vianello speak with only the slightest hint of Italian accents, enough to locate the story but not enough to turn characters into caricature. Colacci's voice turns Leon's Venice alternately damp and nasty or suffuses it with a warmth and humanity that mirrors the story's swiftly shifting currents. S.J.H.
