Leon whips up a brilliant narrative storm.'

Claudia seemed to have no discernible living family, but lived with an elderly Austrian woman.

Brunetti is stunned by the extraordinary art collection the old woman keeps, and when she in turn is found dead, the case begins to unlock long buried secrets of collaboration during the war, secrets few in Italy are happy to explore...
