Gianni Peroni is at a loose end. He's got nothing urgent to do but he notices that the pathologist has a busy day ahead: during the night two corpses were picked out of the Tiber. At first glance, it seems that the similarities between the two men end there. But then Gianni notices something very strange...

If you are a fan of the Nic Costa series, you must give this a listen. Saul Reichlin's narration is perfect, as usual. Peroni gets a chance to move from his supporting role to being the central character in the story, and the listener has the pleasure of observing Peroni's old school detective work.
Seeing how Peroni handles the hot shot Commissario from up north.
Every character has a unique voice, but Reichlin achieves this with great subtlety. I think I would even enjoy hearing Reichlin read the phone book.
Yes, particularly because it is short.
"Mutch to short :) Gianni Peroni deserved this :)"
That an old dog can show young dogs how to bark :)
Gianni Peroni because he can do this without being smug.
"Peroni shows how it's done."
With the regular crowd (Theresa, Falconi and Costa) away Peroni tasks himself with solving 2 murders, much to the annoyance of a new inspector from Milan. A must for all of you that enjoy the Rome series by David Hewson, and the splendid narration by Saul Reichlin. More please more. The cost is however a little expensive for this short story of 1hr 15 or so. An indulgent pleasure, - enjoy.
