Library Journal Review

In his latest outing, Commissario Brunetti (after By Its Cover) investigates a stalking centered on the production of the well-known Puccini opera Tosca. Flavia Petrelli, the fabulous Italian soprano and murder suspect from Leon's first novel, Death at La Fenice, returns to the famed opera house. This time, Flavia is the victim of a stalker who showers her with abundant yellow roses and priceless jewels. Anyone who appears to befriend or protect Flavia becomes as well, with the soprano herself the intended final act. As in previous entries, Brunetti and company highlight excellent detective work in addition to providing clever but perceptive commentary on critical social issues, this time unionization and strikes. Brunetti devotees and avid readers will also savor the passages focusing on Brunetti's spouse, Paola, and her love of reading. Listen should be forewarned that this entry, which is narrated by the gifted David Colacci, ends somewhat abruptly. Verdict Recommend to Leon's fans as well as those who enjoy Louise Penny's Armand Gamache and the long-running Richard Jury series by Martha Grimes-different locales with great detectives.
