Although this is the 14th book in the Brunetti series, it's the first I've read. I found the mystery plot to be rather mild, but the political intrigue was fascinating. The insight into the workings of Italy's law enforcement bureaucracies was cleverly written. And the development of the characters and their working and social relationships was very entertaining. The author's style has subtle humor and irony, and presents modern-day Venice in a fond but probably accurate light.
