Narrator David Colacci reprises his portrayal of Commissario Guido Brunetti, of Venice, in the twenty-first installment in Leon’s popular series. This time the mystery revolves around the murder of a veterinarian with an unusual disfiguring disease. Colacci gives Brunetti a deep, rhythmic voice that engages the listener. The Italian accent Colacci employs enhances the reading without letting it overpower the flow of the story. Further, he expertly switches between English and Italian words without missing a beat. The only missteps are when Colacci occasionally drops the Italian accent right before a transition between dialogue and narration. But, overall, Colacci provides an excellent depiction of the thoughtful yet authoritative commissario as he investigates another murder in the inimitable city of Venice.
