Venetian Inspector Brunetti has his hands full. Even at home, there is no escape from his work. Commissario Guido Brunetti is living in a nightmare. He is called to investigate an act of mundane vandalism - a rock smashing a window in the silence of the Venetian dawn. Somewhat unusually, the vandal waited to be caught & the vandal is his wife, Paola Brunetti. In addition, the Mafia seems to be involved in an audacious robbery & an "accidental" death. Brunetti must find out how & why. Pressure from his superiors, pressure at home, has his life in turmoil, then there's the conspiracy his wife exposed in desperation

Library Journal Review

This eighth book in the Commissario Brunetti mystery series was first published in 1999. When Paola Brunetti decides to object to one of society's evils by breaking a window of a travel agency that routinely plans tours for men preying upon powerless young Asians, she opens the way to another crime. The agency owner is strangled, and a note found with the body proclaims the reason to be his tours for pedophiles. Commissario Brunetti discounts the note when he finds perplexing leads into yet another immoral business. VERDICT Crime in Venice is a little more exotic than crime in the United States, so prepare to be charmed by David Colacci's reading, the likable characters, and the Venetian views.
