Scherzo: Murder and Mystery in 18th Century Venice - Jim Williams

Scherzo: Murder and Mystery in 18th Century Venice - Jim Williams

Jim Williams' Scherzo takes us to the city of gondolas and masks in its most decadent ... more

period, to an 18th-century never-never land where
dates and identities blur.  Castrated as a boy to
preserve his soprano voice for the church,
Lodovico survives by singing,  whoring and his
wits. With a visiting French philosopher going by
the name of Arouet,  Lodovico  finds the stabbed
and disembowelled body of his employer's rival
Signor Molin hanging from a bridge.  Lodovico's
troubles do not end there. He is pursued by Jesuit
conspirators and a jealous  madman obsessed with a
blue velvet suit Lodovico has borrowed from his
gigolo friend Giacomo  (as with Arouet, Williams
makes us guess at Giacomo's true identity).    As
he shares in Arouet's investigation of the murder,
Lodovico matches wits with the sharpest  minds of
his time and proves considerably more than the
Watson-like narrator he at first appears. 
Williams has produced one of the more decorative
historical thrillers of recent years and at the 
same time interestingly subverts the whole genre.
After all, "scherzo" means "joke", and there  are
deep levels at which this is not a wholly serious
book--"the solution to a mystery is not like the 
goal of a journey, and that it is the journey not
the destination which enlightens us". The games 
intrinsic to thrillers are played with delicious
frivolity. And yet, what is serious is the
touching  portrait of the vulnerable narrator
Lodovico who gradually acquires self-respect amid
the threats  and contempt of his social superiors.
--Roz Kaveney
