A woman serving the architecture faculty at Paola's university consults Brunetti about her son's drug use. Soon afterwards her husband dies in a fall from a bridge, and it appears he had some help getting over it. At times Griffoni seems a more capable investigator than Brunetti. At the same time Patta tries to find a leak in the department. While I always enjoy my visits to Venice through these novels, this one doesn't seem to be quite as cohesive as some. Some plot lines seem to almost drop from the radar. Leon's endings never wrap up quite as neatly as ones by other mystery writers--and I'll leave that there as a teaser! David Colacci's narrations are always superb. ( )

It is very difficult to maintain the same quality throughout a longstanding series as this one(this is number 27...). And although that the storyline is still very good,the development of the characters is too detailed(looks,hand movement, breath taking,frowned eyebrows...).But this is unfortunately not exactly an added bonus. It does not lead to more understanding, more depth...
That said,one of the main characters is the city of Venice and Venice fulfils its role to perfection!

Donna Leon demonstrates again and again that a mystery novel need not be fast-paced, involve multiple crimes or even be particularly suspenseful to make compelling reading. She accomplishes this feat again in “The Temptation of Forgiveness” (2018).

Leon's secret lies with interesting characters whose daily lives are filled with enough drama and comedy to keep readers entertained even as the mystery plods along. I sped through this novel more quickly than I do most mysteries.

This time the case before Commissario Guido Brunetti of the Venice police involves a man's death from a fall from a bridge in the middle of the night. It may have been an accident but seems suspicious, especially since the man's wife had visited Brunetti just a couple of days previously with worries that her teenage son might be involved with drugs. The commissario's first thought is that the father might have died in a confrontation with his son's drug dealer.

Brunetti seems to have a one-track mind, my main complaint with the novel. Rather than compile evidence and thoroughly question witnesses, first the wife and son, he always seems to start with a theory, then look only for evidence to support it. When that fails, he tries another theory and gathers more evidence. Yet his methods actually work in the end.

Meanwhile we are amused by his relationships with his wife and children and with the people he works with, especially Signorina Electra, the ever resourceful secretary who seems to be able discover with her computer any information Brunetti might desire. Among her secrets, known only to Brunetti, is that she has bugged the office of their boss.

While not the best book in the long series, “The Temptation of Forgiveness” (I love Leon's titles) will not disappoint. ( )

Synopsis: There seems to be a leak in the office and Brunetti suspects that he knows the source: Electra. A woman arrives in Brunetti's office to request that he check into the drugs that seem to be available in a private school; she is concerned that her son is on drugs. A few days later her husband is attacked and is in a coma in the hospital. Brunetti has to work to find not only the attacker as well as the source of the drugs.
Review: A very interesting story with an intriguing look at greed, drugs, and the need to support a family. ( )
