"There is the joy of contemplating Venice: the veiled and ancient heroine, with a sad haunted beauty slipping away year by year. Read it is the dusk, with a grappa" -- Libby Purves * Good Book Guide * "Brunetti ... long ago joined the ranks of the classic fictional detectives" * Evening Standard * "Complex and thought-provoking and lingers in the mind" * Sunday Times * "Wonderfully familiar characters, a powerful sense of place and expert plotting" * Guardian *
