David Colacci narrates a thoughtful mystery overflowing with Venetian culture and history. Number 32 in the series featuring the illustrious Commissario Guido Brunetti focuses on the horrific murder of a Sri Lankan immigrant. Brunetti met the victim before his death, but there's no proof the dead man ever existed before that. Colacci imbues the story with patient gravitas. Every character benefits from a varied voicing with subtle touches that help them stand apart but remain distinctly Colacci. The diction is clear and precise, and the Italian accents are delightfully tasteful. The story ambles along as Brunetti investigates with compassion and heart, complemented by Colacci's wonderfully performed narration. This is a strong addition to the long-running series.
