Overview

On a spring day in Venice, Commissario Brunetti and his assistant Vianello play hooky to help Vianello s friend Marco Ribetti, arrested during an environmental protest. They secure his release, only to be faced with the fury of the man s father-in-law, Giovanni De Cal, who has made violent threats against Ribetti. Brunetti s curiousity is piqued, and he finds himself drawn to investigate. Is De Cal the type of man to carry out his threats? When the body of De Cal s bookish night watchman is found in front of the blazing furnace, he wonders: Could the old man have killed him? "

Venetian glass

I must admit to a great fondness for Commissario Guido Brunetti—one of the most fully dimensional and likable of the fictional investigators who ferret out the bad guys and try to bring a modicum of justice to our increasingly complex world—and for his creator, Donna Leon. Through a Glass, Darkly, Leon's 15th atmospheric mystery set in ultra-atmospheric Venice, once more brings you into this venerable, venerated city as it exists for Venetians, not tourists. This time, Brunetti finds himself embroiled in environmental politics, a murder on the island of Murano where the famed Venetian glass has been made for centuries and, as ever, in the corruption that pervades Italian bureaucracy. David Colacci, the voice of Brunetti and his brethren on the last four recordings, allows just enough of an authentic Italian accent to satisfy and gives the contemplative commissario the warm dignity he well deserves.
