A fantastic view of modern-day Venice, the decaying skeleton of a once-great city-state. Dibdin's mysteries are first rate, although the ending for this one is a little flat. However, he always gives an accurate portrait of Italian culture: high-style and low corruption.

I really wanted to like this from a new to me author. I'd already seen film adaptations of two of his previous books, and enjoyed them very much, but the story didn't pull me in. I couldn't get past the fact that the Aurelio Zen of the book was nothing like the character that Rufus Sewell created on screen. I have one more of the series in my TBR pile which I'll try and hope that I like it better.

Interesting setting and characters but rather obscure at times.

This was a mystery unlike any I can remember reading. As Aurelio Zen returns to his home town of Venice, the story delves into Aurelio's past and the people he grew up with and shows a Venice that only a native would know.
