One of the best Brunetti mysteries

Lots of insight into the Brunetti family, as well as his relationship with his brother and his father-in-law, and even a little glimpse of his father, made this book especially interesting. The contrast between this family and the one involved in the murder plot, as well as how all, even Brunetti's father, have been shaped and their character revealed by the events of history, with consequences that continue to shape each generation. Lots of philosophical argument too, often supplied by the insightful Paula.
As always a flawless, rich reading by Mr. Colacci.
