Commissario Guido Brunetti must contend with ingenious corruption, bureaucratic intransigence, and the stifling heat of a Venetian summer. As he plans a trip to the mountains with his family, he learns that cases at the local court—hardly known as a model of efficiency—are being delayed to the benefit of one of the parties. A creative new trick for corrupting the system, perhaps, but what can Brunetti do about it? Just when it looks like he will be able to get away, a shocking, violent crime forces him to stay in Venice.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The humid, oppressive Venetian summer is palpable in Donna Leon’s nineteenth Commissario Guido Brunetti mystery…Leon creates such a rich sense of place that reading often feels like a slow vaporetto ride through the swelteringly humid canals of Venice, past splendid bridges and palazzi with time out for tramezzini and rich Italian coffee.” Boston Globe
“Leon’s books are a joy, and the nineteenth Venice-based Commissario Brunetti novel is well up to her consistently high standard. Guardian (London)
“Set during an oppressive Venetian August, Leon’s masterful nineteenth Commisario Guido Brunetti mystery presents Brunetti with two puzzles that impinge on his most intimate beliefs…As one good man who still believes in the rule of law despite his disgust at Italy’s mounting corruption, Brunetti allows readers to share his belief that decency and honesty can, for a little while, stave off the angst of the modern world.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Leon’s many fans love this series for the Venetian setting, the complex family dynamics, and the hero’s mix of melancholy and compassion, and in this nineteenth installment, they get all of the above…A unique combination of bedrock cynicism and warm humanity.” Booklist (starred review)
