Can I give this six stars? This historic mystery is so much more!

Gianni, the older man who tells the story, is part of the Rainaldi Quartet---four men who meet to play stringed instruments of an evening. When one member is killed, Gianni, together with the younger member, the chief of police, follow clues and hopes of clues to England and various places within Italy.

That isn't the whole of the story. There's Gianni's reactions to death, the changing vistas of Venice, and meeting a woman after being widowed for six years. He reflects on an over two hundred year-old building, records that have turned to dust, a day with his grandchildren. It's a thoughtful book, a quietly suspenseful book, and physically, a book that's easy to read with soft pages and a sans serif type font that exactly fits.
