One of the pleasures of this Brunetti novel is the reappearance of archaeologist Brett, who brought the Xian exhibit to Venice a few years ago, and her lover Flavia, diva at Milan and all over the opera world. Unfortunately, the novel opens with the severe beating of Brett in her own home by two unknown men, apparently in a botched robbery. Brunetti visits her in the hospital as a friend, but when the head of the museum is murdered a few days later, becomes involved in a professional capacity. The pollution of high waters, and corruption of the art world, nearly overwhelm Brunetti, as he tries to find out who would dare substitute fakes for the real thing. One of the best, for its character development, including that of the bad guys, Brunetti's maturing children, and his co workers.

After reading Donna Leon's Guido Brunetti books I long to go back to Venice to see and absorb all the intriguing things I was completely unaware of in previous visits.
