Description: Centuries ago, Venice celebrated the Day of All Souls by building a bridge of boats across the canal to the cemetery island of San Michele. As the tourist season winds down, the Contessa da Capo-Zendrini decides it’s time to revive the tradition, organizing a fleet so the city can mourn once more as it did in ancient times. Her plans are upended, however, when her latest fascination, a rakish playwright named Bobo, begins receiving anonymous threats

Author Edward Sklepowich writes knowingly of Venice-both the current (but not modern) city, and the city described by poets and philosophers of the ages. Indeed, much of the pleasure of THE LAST GONDOLA comes not from the mystery, but from the atmosphere of the city, of culture and secret knowledge. Mystery fans may grow impatient with the slow pace at which the mystery evolves, the strange coincidences that are contorted to make the story, and with Urbino's apparent willingness to leave all morals behind.

Anayalore
We purchased several mysteries set in Venice for a recent trip. This was the sole clunker. The premise is that a wealthy Countess falls in love with a performer who may be threatening to her. Her saviour in the mess is Urbino McIntyre, an Italian/American writer of mini-biographies, who is both her friend and is semi-supported by her. Urbino is 20 year younger than her at 45 and suffers from gout (and pretention). The writing is tortured and so is the reader. Give these a pass and try Donna Leon instead.

While I realize Urbino is annoyingly one-dimensional, the real star of this series is Venice, which is decidedly worthy of being extolled and enshrined in one's imagination. I have liked the entire series and look forward to the hours of wandering the city with a main character who does not distract me from this wondrous, decaying unique work of art.
