leave closed. After a wealthy elderly woman is found brutally murdered in her apartment, the authorities suspect her maid. But when the maid meets an untimely end trying to escape from border police, and it appears that the money she carried may not have been stolen, Commissario Guido Brunetti decides--unofficially--to take the case on himself.

Another dark and unsettling Venice mystery solved by Commissario Brunetti. Leon is the master of red herrings, but somehow it's worse here because the compelling (and hair-raising) questions brought up by the tangent aren't answered, so the reader is left to guess and assume the worst.

Brunetti and his wife Paola spend much of the book meditating on sin and whether in our modern world it still exists. At the end of the book he realizes that there is still one even the best of us--and perhaps mostly the best of us--can be undone by: pride.

Smart and almost impossible to predict: another winner.
