About this deal

Brunetti's perusal of Kavinda's little house reveals that the caretaker was neat and clean; had an altar to Buddha; and had shelves full of books, including mystery novels and books about The Red Brigades.

La autora tiene un gran habilidad a la hora de crear personajes complejos que cobran vida en sus páginas con aparente sencillez. Somehow, Alvise, at the next table, managed to calm the man down, spoke with him for a few minutes, then suggested that he apologize to the waiter and help him put the table upright again.

The thought of the feral mug of warm, damp air in the passenger cabin only confirmed the wisdom of his choice. The Commissario starts out where he would rather be culling his crowded bookshelves than heading off to the mainland to retrieve one of their policemen, who’s somehow been caught up in a protest march that has turned violent. He set it beside him, knelt again, and glanced more carefully at the remaining books, making a series of visceral judgements, adding the books to the bag without bothering to give them the opportunity to plead for their lives from the temporary safety of Paola’s desk.

Moby Dick; The Man of Feeling; I Promessi Sposi, which he’d been forced to read as a student in liceo and had hated. A few weeks later, Tullio Gasparini, the woman’s husband, is found unconscious with a serious head injury at the foot of a bridge, and Brunetti is drawn to pursue a possible connection to the boy’s behaviour. To help his father in law, Guido visits the Palazzo Zaffo dei Leoni in an effort to discover whether the rumours it is for sale are true, where he meets a Sri Lankan man living in the garden house in the grounds. The nearest witnesses to the event are the tourists who had been browsing the man’s wares before his death – fake handbags of every designer label – but they have seen nothing that might be of much help to the police.Vianello interrupted here and asked, ‘Excuse me, Signore, could you tell me why you asked about that? He cares about the people he works with (but not those he works for) and makes the most of friendships and good food and wine.

Before Vianello could say anything, Danieli continued, ‘Another person said that my officer was deliberately, and unnecessarily, rough in treating yours. Sime is suffering from insomnia, a situation made worse by the fact that his ex-wife is also on the investigating team. Instead of offering his hand to the men, Danieli waved it towards the chairs in front of his desk and waited until they were seated before he sat down again. Now, with The Midnight Hour, fifteen years have gone by and DI Stephens’ wife, Emma formerly a policewoman is now a private detective working with Sam (Samantha) Collins, formerly an investigative reporter.Nobody can find him – not his daughter, not his friends, and not the woman he’d been secretly visiting. It seems that discrepancies have been occurring at the Courthouse involving a judge and an usher with a flawless track record. But when the bureaucrat rings Brunetti at work, clearly scared, and is then found dead after a fall from scaffolding, something is obviously going on that has implications greater than the fate of Brunetti’s apartment.

Alvis, a single man in his early fifties, is finally comfortable admitting this to them and lets them know about his partner. Also every Friday there is The Friday 56, hosted by Freda at Freda’s Voice, where you grab a book and turn to page 56 (or 56% of an eBook), find one or more interesting sentences (no spoilers), and post them. As an opera superstar, Flavia is well acquainted with attention from adoring fans and aspiring singers. To Guido's surprise, he recognises the murdered man, he had met him the previous day, the undocumented Sri Lankan, Inesh Kavinda, a peace loving Buddhist who did various job's for the Palazzo's owners, a Italian academic Professor Renato Molin and his wife, Gloria Forcolin, who he had met previously. But the new owner, keen for renovations to begin, is summoned urgently to the house when his workmen disturb a macabre grave.

The police investigation doesn’t happen and the chief brings in some connection to the characters through a new algorithm that she acquired in a conference and then the case gets solved. He looked up and got to his feet: his eyes were a very pale blue and tilted faintly upwards at the outer corners. But it will take another violent death in Venice before the forces of justice can even begin to proceed. When Brunetti arrives on the scene, he finds it hard to understand why anyone would murder an illegal immigrant. Fazio said he started screaming at the guy who’d taken his sign – the usual: “fucking faggots”, “you’re all sinners”.
