Description
 
In Leons fifth Commissario Guido Brunetti mystery, the beating of renowned art historian Dotoressa Brett Lynch draws the contemporary Venetian police detective out of his warm and loving home and into the yearly onslaught of acqua alta, the torrential winter rains.

Brett, an American who spearheaded a recent exhibition of Chinese pottery in Venice, lives with her lover, Flavia Petrelli, the reigning diva of La Scala. With his open mind and good sense, Brunetti finds himself more fazed by Flavias breathtaking talent than by the nontraditional relationship between the two women. Brunettis deliberate and humane investigation to uncover a motive for Bretts beating takes him to dark, wet corners of Venice and into a sinister web of art theft, fakery and base human desires.

"Every fans first-pick Brunetti novel." --The New Yorker

"Music and art mingle delightfully with murder and mayhem in the course of this very engaging story." --Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"A subtle study of emotion and character... A sophisticated mystery." --Library Journal
