Gonzalo Rodríguez de Tejeda, originally from Spain, has made a fortune in art dealings. Now he’s spending his twilight years in Venice. But what is next? Should his conservative family, that has always had a problem with his more liberal lifestyle, really inherit his wealth? If not them, then who? Brunetti’s father-in-law is afraid something bad might happen to his friend Gonzalo. The Comissario is asked to help and nearly gets lost in the abyss of the human heart.

Donna Leon, born in 1942 in New Jersey, worked as a tour guide in Rome and as copywriter in London. She has also taught at American schools in Switzerland, Iran, China and Saudi Arabia. She is known for her Brunetti novels, which have made her popular all over the world. She currently lives in Switzerland and Venice.
