They end too soon . They quietly take you away and show you a mystery that develops slowly while you escape to Venice, Italy. It ends too soon and leaves you waiting for the next book.

As usual Ms. Leon leads you towards the ending by way of literary figures and a glass of grappa. This one was a surprise of who did it, the son, the wife, or the drug dealers. Don't want to give it away but Guido is always the gentleman. He never disapponts. Though I would have enjoyed some good food and vino to solve the mystery.

Where there are government programs, there is always room for fraud. And Italy is no exception. Commissario Guido Brunetti discovers a clever scheme while investigating an apparent assault case involving the husband of a colleague of his wife, who had previously visited him because she suspected drugs were being sold in her son’s school. One thing led to another. Brunetti found the drug dealer, who also was operating a clever scheme to distribute drugs to the kids. And when the aforementioned husband was found comatose at the foot of a bridge and taken to the hospital, Brunetti at first suspected the assault was the result of a confrontation with the drug dealer. Donna Leon has written almost three dozen novels in this series, combining vivid descriptions of Venice, Brunetti’s appetite, and a wide variety of social ills. In this installment, she combines the taking advantage of elderly people and of government programs such as medicine and drug insurance, exposing both while Brunetti goes about in his calm manner conducting his investigation. Recommended.
