Description
Set during an oppressive Venetian August, this 19th Commissario Guido Brunetti mystery by the author of About Face finds the inspector attempting to go on vacation, but instead contending with two puzzles that impinge on his most intimate beliefs. First Brunetti's friend Ispettore Vianello, who's worried that his elderly aunt is being hoodwinked by an astrologer, asks for help in trailing her. Then Toni Brusca, head of employment records at the Commune, asks Brunetti's advice on discrepancies at the Courthouse involving a female judge and an usher with a flawless track record. When the usher turns up dead, Brunetti returns to Venice to investigate. This novel, like the others in Donna Leon's atmospheric yet realistic series featuring Commissario Brunetti of the Venice police, reveals the contemporary city that dwells behind the history and tourism. Pointed social commentary, depictions of residents' everyday life, and political machinations (sometimes palpable, but most often lurking beneath the surface) mix with the mysteries at hand and Brunetti's love of his city, while Leon gives us a depth of character and plot not always associated with the mystery genre.

"One of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever."Washington Post
