Fatal Remedies by Donna Leon (Comissario Brunetti #08) One of the things I love the most about these books is the relationship Brunetti has with his wife, Paola and in this book that relationship is put to the test from page 5.
There has been an act of vandalism against a travel agency and Brunetti is called in the middle of the night to go to the Questura and take care of things. Especially because the person responsible for the vandalism is his wife. How to act when their careers and personal lives intersect in such a violent way? And, what to do when you also throw in there a murder?
Four stars!

Paola Brunetti, frustrated by the lack of any legal recourse, decides to take matters into her own hands to protest a local travel agency's tours to third world countries for the purpose of connecting tourists with child prostitutes. She throws a rock through a travel agency's windows, setting discord in motion between her and Guido. Shortly thereafter, the owner of the agency is murdered, causing Paola to assume that her actions precipitated the murder. ( )
