A Thousand Days in Venice, apart from the setting of course, but even that took on a different view.
I was dismayed at first to read so many negative reviews on Amazon (UK) but that turned out to be because it has been republished with a new title, the US title. Previously it was called "The Death of Faith". People were understandably annoyed that they had bought what they thought was a new book only to discover they had already read it.
I enjoyed the book. It is one of a number of books in the series featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti. The characters of Brunetti himself, his colleagues, and of his family were appealing to me. It is quite a relief to read about a policeman who isn't an alcoholic or has a failing marriage, or any other major problem in his life.
There are a couple of big issues brought into the plot, one of which, paedophile priests, may have been the reason for the re-issue now that it's even more consistently in the news. The other issue concerns Opus Dei and the power of the Roman Catholic Church. Both I feel to be rather too deep for this book and sit uncomfortably in an otherwise lighter book. They aren't really examined or addressed to any extent and I felt that they didn't quite mesh together or with the rest of the plot.
You are constantly aware of the setting in Venice with a strong sense of the city and of Venetian society.
Quietly in Their Sleep is available from Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk
