Summary, etc.:
The beating of renowned art historian Dotoressa Brett Lynch draws Commissario Guido Brunetti out of his warm and loving home and into the yearly onslaught of acqua alta, the torrential winter rains. Brett, an American who spearheaded a recent exhibition of Chinese pottery in Venice, lives with her lover, Flavia Petrelli, the reigning diva of La Scala. Brunetti's deliberate and humane investigation to uncover a motive for Brett's beating takes him to dark corners of Venice and into a sinister web of art theft, fakery, and base human desires.
