Respectable Venetians hardly notice the murder of a transvestite prostitute until the body is identified as the staid director of the Banca di Verona. While tongues wag over the scandal, only Guido Brunetti, the suave and sharp-eyed commisario of police, suspects foul play.

In Leon's third Brunetti mysteries, he and his assistant learn new things about their city, themselves, and their boss. A murder in an area frequented by prostitutes appears at first to be of a transvestite--a man wearing a red dress and new red shoes. With no ID, and his face battered beyond recognition, it takes a while to learn that he's a prominent businessman. But the transvestite label doesn't fit. This discovery leads Brunetti and his team to investigate prostitutes and confront their own feelings about sexual identity. It also leads to danger and another murder. Meantime, Lt. Patta's marital troubles threaten to hit the national tabloids. Brunetti's wife helps him understand his own reactions while they attempt to keep their children from knowing about the case. She also feeds her family wonderful meals while reading Henry James.

This series is excellent--great plots, interesting characters, and a matchless setting. Enjoy!
