Bestselling crime novelist Donna Leon serves up a murder investigation in scenic Venice, where a ten-year-old Roma girl is found dead in a canal. The sharp-witted police inspector, Commissario Guido Brunetti, attempts to speak with members of the gypsy encampment where the little girl lived, but finds them tight-lipped and uncooperative. When he learns who had befriended the victim and her little brother, he begins to understand the community’s silence. It also explains why he’s hit obstacles preventing the investigation.
