This is the 22nd outing for Leon's stolid Venetian detective, Commissario Brunetti. This time he's voiced by English narrator David Rintoul. Unlike so many detectives, Brunetti is neither depressed nor an alcoholic. Instead, his stable family life and the numerous home-cooked meals they eat together form a comforting backdrop to the darker story. A deaf man is found dead, and Brunetti's wife, Paola, is troubled by how little they knew of him. The more Brunetti investigates, the more uneasy he becomes. David Rintoul has a smooth, assured English voice, and his Italian pronunciations are convincing and Italian accents kept to a minimum. The listener longs to join him as Brunetti, punctuating numerous vaporetto journeys with glasses of white wine, coffees, and panini. C.A.T. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
