9780679753117: Dead Lagoon: An Aurelio Zen Mystery

Among the emerging generation of crime writers, none is as stylish and intelligent as Michael Dibdin, who, in Dead Lagoon, gives us a deliciously creepy new novel featuring the urbane and skeptical Aurelio Zen, a detective whose unenviable task it is to combat crime in a country where today's superiors may be tomorrow's defendants.Zen returns to his native Venice. He is searching for the ghostly tormentors of a half-demented contessa and a vanished American millionaire whose family is paying Zen under the table to determine his whereabouts-dead or alive. But he keeps stumbling over corpses that are distressingly concrete: from the crooked cop found drowned in one of the city's noisome "black wells" to a brand-new skeleton that surfaces on the Isle of the Dead. The result is a mystery rich in character and deduction, and intensely informed about the history, politics, and manners of its Venetian setting.

Review:

In this, the latest in the Aurelio Zen series, Zen is in Venice under false pretenses. He's ostensibly there to investigate the "haunting" of an old family friend, but actually, and illegally, in town to find the body--dead or alive--of the missing patriarch of a wealthy American family.

"Zen is as sharp as ever in dealing with sneering Venetian lowlifes and bent Venetian cops. This masterfully atmospheric tale...will make most readers wish he could have stayed on the case forever." --Kirkus Reviews

From the Inside Flap:

Dibdin gives readers a deliciously creepy new novel featuring the urbane and skeptical Aurelio Zen. In this new mystery, Zen returns to his native Venice, searching for a missing American millionaire and encountering an assortment of corpses--including a suspiciously new skeleton that surfaces on the Isle of the Dead.

Descrizione libro Vintage Crime/Black Lizard, United States, 1996. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The man is Aurelio Zen. The place is Venice, once his home, now the site of his reluctant homecoming. Zen is a member of the elite Italian Criminalpol squad stationed in Rome: a middle-aged man disgusted with - but begrudgingly resigned to - the political bog of corruption and cynicism within which he has to work. Intelligent, weary, urbane, pensive, Zen has been the complex heart of Michael Dibdin s most highly praised books. And now, he s back. He s back in Venice after a long absence, and under false pretenses: ostensibly to investigate the haunting of an old family friend but actually, and illegally, to find the body - dead or alive - of the missing patriarch of a wealthy American family. With no real authority and no leads, Zen is reminded that amid the shifting light and water of the lagoons, nothing is what it seems - not even the skeletal corpse discovered, unburied, on the Isle of the Dead. The questions of how and why it came to be there are shrouded in mystery, confusion, and an indeterminate but growing threat of violence. And they are questions that will inexorably draw Zen into a confrontation with the veiled, seemingly unknowable truths about his own life. Codice libro della libreria AAS9780679753117
