Death in a Strange Country. Brunetti noticed that the pavement was wet, with large puddles against the walls of the buildings he passed. Curious, he walked back to the edge of the riva and looked down at the water, but it was more than half a metre below him. It was low tide, there was no acqua alta, and no rain had fallen for days, so the only way the water could have got there was by being washed up by a passing ship. All the clues point to a violent mugging, but for Brunetti the motive of robbery seems altogether too convenient.

Leon really manages to evoke the workaday reality of the city.
