About this deal

He followed Vianello into the elevator, got out with him on the second floor, and stayed close behind him as the Ispettore turned right and then left, ending in front of an office with the name ‘Danieli’ on the door. However, when Franchini is found murdered in his home, the case takes a more sinister turn and soon Brunetti finds himself submerged in the dark secrets of the black market of antiquarian books. Since his debut over thirty years ago in Death At La Fenice, Brunetti has investigated a new crime in Venice each year, from corruption to mafia, real estate to trade art, collecting millions of fans around the world in that time. Markham, a Shetlander visiting his parents, was apparently working on a story for a national newspaper – maybe about the development of renewable energy proposed for Shetland, or maybe his reason was more personal? Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.

For the culprit waiting to be apprehended at the scene of the crime is none other than Paola Brunetti, his wife. 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. The eighth of July was a Sunday and on the following Monday I left West Hatch, the village where we lived near Salisbury, for Brandham Hall.Is this the natural reluctance of Italians to involve themselves with the authorities, or is Brunetti facing a conspiracy of silence? Taking on the case, the Commissario begins to seek information about some of the library’s regulars, such as the ex-priest Franchini, a passionate reader of ancient Christian literature, and Contessa Morosini-Albani, the library’s chief donor, and comes to the conclusion that the thief could not have acted alone.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. There was supposed to be singing and maybe a few speeches, but they hadn’t figured on the rain, so things got confused, and it was after eleven by the time they left COIN. And it’s a trail that leads him to Lonsdale College, where the contest between Julian Storrs and Dr Denis Cornford for the coveted position of Master is hotting up. It seems that discrepancies have been occurring at the Courthouse involving a judge and an usher with a flawless track record. This is a gentle novel - an odd thing to say about crime fiction and also about Donna Leon, who has expressed anger in past stories about the failures of Italian politics and administration and about the tourism influx into her beloved Venice.Brunetti and Vianello then marvel at the fact that - although they've worked with Alvise for years - they didn't know he was gay, and they're pleased the incident gave Alvise the opportunity to come out to them. The man’s mother is angry and contradictory when questioned about his death, and Brunetti senses that there much more to the story than she is willing to tell. As Venice experiences a debilitating heatwave, Brunetti escapes the city to spend time with his family. Not the Venice that the hoards of day trippers experience, but the real city of the Venetians who reside there.
