    Commissario Guido Brunetti's hopes for a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Marghera--a body so badly beaten the face is completely unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the corpse but is met with a wall of silence. He then receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information.

    Story
    What did you love best about Dressed for Death?

    The way the author conveyed the atmosphere of being in Venice in the hot, muggy, non-air conditioned summer. The heat is practically a character itself.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the plot is good. The solution to the mystery was not readily apparent until revealed by the narrative. The intricacies of politics, corruption, and culture had an effect on the progress of the murder investigation, and I found that additional facet added interest.


    What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

    He is so good at voicing the different characters. None of his narration felt out of place or jarring, even when he voiced the females and the villains. The Italian accent he gave his characters helped convey the sense of place.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was moved by the compassion and respect detective Guido Bernelli displayed toward the murder victim and witnesses, and by his loving relationship with his wife and daughter.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first exposure to Donna Leon, whose novels were recommended by a friend. I would purchase another Donna Leon-David Colacci audiobook without hesitation. With her plotting skills and his great narration, I was hooked from beginning to end.
