- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 February #2
A typical case for Leon's Venetian police commissario, Guido Brunetti, begins with a request for help and moves from there to a crime; with the investigation that follows comes the agonizing ambiguity that has always been at the heart of this richly rewarding series: guilt and innocence in the eyes of the law, Brunetti knows, rarely capture the human truth behind the apparent wrongdoing he has uncovered. So it is here when a friend of Brunetti's wife comes to him concerned that her son is involved in drugs; shortly thereafter, the woman's husband incurs serious brain damage from a fall that may not have been an accident. The two events seem related, but how? As Brunetti pulls at the dangling threads in this case, he finds himself obligated to take actions whose collateral damage outweighs the meager benefits of solving a crime. Meanwhile, he faces a similar crisis at the Questura, where his longtime collaborator, the wily Signorina Elettra, may have stepped over a line that Brunetti can't erase. Another powerful exploration of the injustice of justice from a master of character-rich crime fiction.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Guido Brunetti may be the most beloved protagonist in crime fiction, and if his shoulders are stooping over so many encounters with human tragedy, his fans will feel only excitement at the prospect of joining him in his twenty-seventh adventure.
