His wife, Paola, has been arrested for vandalism and malicious damage. She has, of course, acted out of the highest of motives--the tourist agency whose windows she smashed specialises in trips for unaccompanied men to the Far East.

But just how far is it legitimate to go when faced with something like sex tourism? And how can Brunetti pursue justice with his wife taking the law into her own hands? This has all of Leons regular cast of characters--Brunettis indolent and corrupt superior Patta, only too pleased to use his zealous commissario as a scapegoat, and Paolas somewhat sinister father, Count Falier, one of the men who, for good and ill, run the city of Venice. As always, the plot switchbacks from crime to crime and issue to issue.

Leons endlessly superior capacity for leading her readers up a variety of garden paths has rarely been so clearly on display. Above all, it shows what has been one of the more attractive marriages in modern detective fiction under serious stress for the first time- these have always been detective stories that offered more rewards than those of crime and punishment and this one is no exception.--Roz Kaveney
