A shining example of modern noir ( )

This author keeps surprising me. This particular episode includes maps of Venice and it was so much fun tracing with my finger the trips up and around the canals. The last few pages were a political commentary eeriely appropriate to our current presidental contest. p.280 "You talk of Dal Maschino like a lover... He's won your heart and you don't understand why I can't see what you see in him....it's an old story...You've made an inspirational leader out of an opportunistic mob-orator and you've remade the history to fit."
Sounds like the reaction to Sarah Palin, to me. ( )

Currently re-reading this series, and loving every minute of it. I'd forgotten how laugh-out-loud some of the metaphors used in Dead Lagoon were, and although the story isn't as much of a page-turner as others in the series, I'm still a fan. ( )

Aurelio Zen is returning to his hometown of Venice to look into the disappearance of an American millionaire. But because the disappearance case seems to have been closed for security reasons, he adopts the pretext of taking a case on behalf of a family friend. The contessa, as he knows her, is elderly and believes she is being visited by ghosts or spirits. Or are her visitors connected to more earthly crimes?

The star of this book is Venice. Through Zen’s eyes we see the city as a native and as an outsider would. This was written over 20 years ago, and then, as now, there were concerns about tourists overrunning the city and pricing out the residents, lack of job opportunities for the young, and skewed demographics. There are also rumblings of a breakthrough in rooting out corruption at the highest levels of government. It’s all an interesting backdrop to the cases Zen gets involved in.

I did find myself slightly ahead of Zen in the deductions department, but it was still a good read in general. ( )

This fourth book in the Aurelio Zen series started off slower than the previous books in the series for me. However, by the end I was glued to the page. Zen's manuevers between doing honest police work and surviving the official bureaucratic politics were up to his usual standards but there is a bit more about his personal life & past which surface both in Zen's reminiscences & in revelations from people who knew him & his family when they lived in Venice. Zen also exhibits some distressing behaviour in his personal & professional life (some but not all of it unintentional) so I am curious to see how he will be in the next book. ( )
