Gonzalo Rodriguez de Tejada is lonely and old.  Once the darling of the art crowd, he now feels irrelevant.  A young man takes his fancy, someone to care for him.  Italian inheritance law requires the bulk of an estate go to the family.  Gonzalo chooses to adopt the young man in order to bequeath him a fortune thus hoping to secure his affection.  Commissario Brunetti’s father-in-law would appreciate having discreet inquiries to the background of the young man; he fears Gonzalo, one his oldest friends, is being foolish.  Two people die suddenly, leaving to Brunetti’s sorrow proof inheritance, fortunes, and family make for treachery and betrayal.  Venice with its twisting allies, aquamarine canals, and shifting mist is the perfect setting for a crime that begins in longing. 

— Deon Stonehouse
