It is autumn in Venice in the 22nd mystery in this series. Commissario Brunetti’s happy family life is contrasted with the life and death of a mentally handicapped man who worked at their dry cleaner. Brunetti’s wife Paola asks him to investigate this death. With a quiet and slow paced plot, Brunetti stops for a coffee or glass of wine, uncovers a clue, interviews a witness and by the end, the quiet horror of a man’s life and death is revealed. If you enjoy a mystery where each book seems like a visit with old friends, try this series.
