Early one morning Guido Brunetti, Commissario of the Venice Police, confronts a grisly sight when the body of a young man is fished out of a fetid Venetian canal. All the clues point to a violent mugging, but for Brunetti, robbery seems altogether too convenient a motive.

A body is pulled out of the canal in Venice dead from an apparent stab wound. Advanced dental work and physical fitness suggests an American and Venetian detective Brunetti calls the nearby U.S. military base to see if anyone is missing. It turns out that the dead soldier is a hospital administrator, and the only person who cares he is dead is a female pediatrician, who had more than a professional relationship with the deceased. Brunetti investigates over the objections of his politically minded superior and uncovers a much ore nefarious crime, to which he puts an end. Leon's talent is describing the city and culture of Venice. ( )

In the early morning hours, Commissario Guido Brunetti gets a call. A body has washed up at the edge of a canal. It turns out to be an American from the nearby military base. What was he doing in Venice?

Initially it is thought to be a mugging, but Brunetti feels there is something more, even if his superior, Vice-Questore Patta, feels it is the quickest way to handle it.

Brunetti visits the victim’s apartment and finds something that doesn’t go with the image projected by co-workers and others who know the victim. It points more to some upper level dirty dealing.

Brunetti finds he has to step carefully and avoid stepping on toes of those higher up the food chain. Some of these people can and do make irritating, nosey people disappear.

Little by little, Brunetti gets all the pieces and makes sense of the puzzle. It is not just local Venetians, but also high powered internationals that are involved.

Leon’s description of Venice, the rhythm of life there and the people creates a great backdrop for her characters and plot. Brunetti’s concern about solving the crime and focus pull you along in his path to a solution. ( )

Another journey through Venice and into the character and family of Brunetti. Cleverly plotted and the ending is a surprise. It also tangentially introduces the reader to the Venetian painter Guadr. The enjoyment can be enhanced by using amapping app to locate some of the places mentioned. ( )

A story of corruption, murder and stalled police investigations. I read Book 1 a very long time ago, and liked the premise of a very human detective with an interesting family. But Book 2 didn't resonate with me very much.
Only in passing comments about the canal system would the reader know it was set in Venice. The architectural remarks seemed like add-ons and somewhat irrelevant, as well as the overly descriptive writing.

Ultimately the narrative was not very intriguing although I did enjoy the interactions between Paola and Guido. I'm tired of the incompetent police superior, as a foil for the intelligent detective, though. The sense of unfinished business at the end of the story was deflating. It may be very realistic, but not very satisfying. ( )

Death In A Strange Country (1993) (Comm. Brunetti #2) by Donna Leon.
A body is fished out of one of Venice’s canals and very quickly it is determined that he was American and probably came from the U.S. Arby base in Vicenza. Discounting the body as a victim of mugging gone bad, and convinced of the U.S. Army’s extended knowledge of the young man’s past and current responsibilities. plus an interview with the female Captain/doctor who came to identify the body, Comm. Brunette heads out to the military base.
Stonewalled by the military, but finding evidence of a coverup at the victims residence, Brunetti is soon on the track of something far more sinister than just a murder. There are deep ties between the military and a local industrialist whose palazzo was robbed of a trio of valuable paintings. That case is also tossed to the Commissario just to complicate his life.
Once again Brunette turns to his father-in-law for information, but there is little he can do. Veiled threats are tossed about and the situation turns very dangerous.
A nice read but if the series doesn’t ramp up the thrills, I just may skip out on the rest. ( )

Volgi intorno lo sguardo, o sire, e
vedi qual strage orrenda nel tuo
nobil regno, fa il crudo mostro. Ah
mira allagate di sangue quelle
pubbliche vie. Ad ogni passo vedrai
chi geme, e l'alma gonfia d'atro
velen dal corpo esala.
Gaze around you, oh sire, and see
that terrible destruction the cruel
monster has wrought in your noble
kingdom. Look at the streets
swamped in blood. At every step
you see someone groaning, the
spirit leaving a corpse swollen with
horrible poison.
--Mozart, Idomeneo
