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.
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!
