It is always a pleasure to welcome Donna Leon and to hear more of the adventures of Commissario Brunetti.
This time the Commissario is called to the bedside of a dying woman, who leaves a cryptic message about the death of her husband. Brunetti is on the case but as so often, it broadens from being a family tragedy to a much larger threat involving a trail leading to Venice’s water supply.
Author and journalist Harriet Sergeant will be teasing out the questions. Harriet’s most recent book Among the Hoods looks at her friendship with a south London gang.
