Description:
"The new Commissario Brunetti novel"--Front cover
When Dottoressa Donato calls the Questura to report that a dying patient at the hospice Fatebenefratelli wants to speak to the police, Commissario Guido Brunetti and his colleague, Claudia Griffoni, waste no time in responding. 'They killed him. It was bad money. I told him no', Benedetta Toso gasps the words about her recently-deceased husband, Vittorio Fadalto. Even though he is not sure she can hear him Brunetti promises he and Griffoni will look into what appears to be a private family tragedy. They discover that Fadalto worked in the field collecting samples of contamination for a company that measures the cleanliness of Venice's water supply and that he had died in a mysterious motorcycle accident. Distracted briefly by Vice Questore Patta's obsession with youth crime in Venice, Brunetti is bolstered once more by the remarkable research skills of Patta's secretary, Signora Elettra Zorzi.

There is less detail than usual in this book about Guido's relationship with the delightful Paola and his family, and I missed that. The plot is the usual mixture of human frailty, powerful influences (this time impacting on Venice's water supply) and moral dilemmas for Guido. Underpinning it all is the beautifully written description of the city itself, which in this book is sweltering in the summer heat and full of tourists.
