It is completely fitting that for this fourth installment in the Aurelio Zen series, the detective returns to his native Venice. There is no more fitting location Dibdin could choose in Italy than Venice, whose canals, back alleys, and dead-ends mirror the convoluted twists of the plot, of the corruption in Italian officialdom, and in the mind of Zen himself; Venice, whose very life depends on the uncertain ebb and flow of the lagoon's waters.
Michael Dibdin is a marvelous writer of mysteries and creator of Aurelio Zen, member of the elite Italian Criminpol. Zen's Venice is a gloomy place of decay and shifting waters. Sent to find a missing American and investigate a "haunting," he faces corruption, disorder and unseen menace. Dibdin is usually too black for me -- but unputdownable.
