Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In what has been described as "her most powerful novel yet", Donna Leon describes how Commissario Brunetti is drawn into secrets dating back to W.W.II by the murder of a young girl. "A classic example of detective-book murder, it is satisfyingly difficult to resolve...Leon whips up a brilliant narrative storm" "Sunday Times".

Synopsis:

When one of his wife's students is murdered, Commissario Brunetti's investigation opens up long-buried secrets of collaboration and the exploitation of Italian Jews during the war; secrets that few in Italy are happy to explore.

This is an excellent example of a classic detective murder tale, a thought provoking story that highlights and exposes the way of doing business in a corrupt world. The first few chapters set the scenes really well while at the same time setting a sub-story which has Brunetti struggling to help a friend obtain a construction permit without paying the customary bribe. The characters are memorable, the plot is intricate and multi-dimensional, and the narration is fluid, it subtly and slowly draws the readers into a compelling and atmospheric tale that is interspersed with domestic interludes. Ms. Leon loves to show the personal side of Italian life through food and family interaction, an asset to any story when not overdone. This is one of my favourite novels in this series.
