    Guerrieri is asked to handle the appeal of Fabio Paolicelli, sentenced to 16 years for smuggling drugs. Paolicelli intially confessed to the crime, and everything seems stacked against the appeal. Guerrieri's reluctance to take on the case is intensified by the fact that he knows Paolicelli, and it is only the intervention of Paolicelli's beautiful wife, Natsu, that finally overcomes Guerrieri's reluctance.

    I heard Gianrico Carofiglio interviewed on public radio and was intrigued enough to buy my first audio version of his book. I liked it so much that I bought another one this month. The vividly depicted internal monologue of this brilliant, but damaged attorney successfully blends the story of his psychological struggles with the legal mazes he maneuvers. The "voice" of the author is well served by the narrator, Sean Barrett, whose performance is outstanding - giving the listener the sensation of being inside this lawyer/sleuth's head!

    When Commissario Brunetti is summoned in the middle of the night to the hospital bed of a pediatrician, he is confronted with more questions than answers. Three men, a young carabiniere captain and two privates from out of town, burst into the doctor's apartment while the family was sleeping, attacked him, and took away his 18-month-old boy. What could have motivated an assault by the forces of the state that was so violent it has left the doctor mute?

    Story

    Besides being in love with Commissario Brunetti which makes me look forward to every book and enjoy them, especially this one with this theme, I must emphasize that the narrator David Colacci must be credited with contributing tremendously to the enjoyment of listening to this intriguing and touching story. Colacci is a treasure as a narrator, one of the few who understands that a reader is conveying the author's creation, not acting on a stage! He also has a good, rich voice with no irritating edges to it. That said, I have loved every Donna Leon book I have both read and listened to. Thanks for providing the new ones as they are published.
