Available in paperback for the first time, the first book in the internationally bestselling Guido Brunetti detective series in which a high society murder leads the detective

Beautiful and serene Venice is a city almost devoid of crime. But that is little comfort to Maestro Helmut Wellauer, a world-renowned conductor whose intermission refreshment comes one night with a little something extra in it--cyanide. For Guido Brunetti, vice-commissario of police and genius detective, finding a suspect isn't a problem; narrowing the large and unconventional group of enemies down to one is. As the suave and pithy Brunetti pieces together clues, a shocking picture of depravity and revenge emerges, leaving him torn between what is and what should be right--and questioning what the law can do, and what needs to be done.

Review:

"Donna Leon's Venetian mysteries never disappoint, calling up the romantic sights and sounds of La Serenissima even as they acquaint us with the practical matters that concern the city's residents."--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

"Guido Brunetti can ride in my gondola anytime. What a splendid detective."--Susan Isaacs, author of After All These Years

"A gripping first mystery, as beguiling and secretly sinister as Venice herself. Sparkling and irresistible."--Rita Mae Brown

"[A] piquant mixture of opera, food and Venetian scenery."--Chicago Tribune

"Donna Leon has given fans of subtle, clever and literate mysteries something to cheer about...A wonderful read."--Tony Hillerman

"A challenging mystery, a sophisticated drama, and a unique glimpse of a medieval society that stilll flourishes."--St Louis Post-Dispatch
