Brunetti's investigations take him into unfamiliar areas of Venetian life, drug abuse and loan-sharking, while the deaths of two young drug addicts and the arrest, and subsequent release, of a suspected drug-dealer reveal, once again, what a difference it makes in Venice to have friends in high places.

"Mystery fans who are looking for a change of scenery and international ambience should get to know Guido Brunetti, commissario of the Venice police." (AudioFile)
I've read/listened to many Donna Leon books and I've never been disappointed. I didn't feel that the basic story lost anything for being abridged, but some of the peripheral details of inspector Brunetti's family relationships and delicious meals prepared by his wife are omitted.
