This 19th installment of the Guido Brunetti series returns the great characters of Commissario Brunetti, Inspector Vianello, and secretary Signorina Elettra to Venice in the stifling heat of a Venice August. Guido loses out on his vacation in the Alps with his family when a diligent government worker is found dead. Was he murdered because of his job working for a corrupt judge or was he murdered because he was a homosexual?

The book is filled with twists and turns followed by an unusual resolution. ( )

Aide memoire: Commissario Brunetti and Ispettore Vianello investigate the murder of an usher at the Courthouse. Also Vianello's aunt has become obsessed with horoscopes. ( )

Not my favorite of Leon's books, but still enjoyable. Guido Brunetti is never a disappointment. ( )

I liked the characters especially the infinitely patient Guido Brunetti who investigated the murder of a hard-working government employee. I liked the setting and descriptions of Venice Italy. I liked insights into the corrupt Italian government. But, overall the pacing was very slow to me and the plot was a bit thin so it was only a borderline read. ( )

I felt that this book really said nothing for almost 100 pages. I then realised that the author was simply setting the scene and characters up before the murder. I enjoyed the book very much. ( )

Book description
Close associate Ispettore Vianello, who's worried about his elderly aunt's involvement with an astrologer, nudges Brunetti toward ruminations on the differences in male and female evidences of affection. Meanwhile, Toni Brusca, head of employment records at the Commune, who's perplexed by a female judge's erratic court case postponements, surprises Brunetti by implying that a woman could be more criminal than a man. Brunetti patiently untangles a sordid skein of desires warped, trusts abused, and loves distorted into depravity. As one good man who still believes in the rule of law despite his disgust at Italy's mounting corruption, Brunetti allows readers to share his belief that decency and honesty can, for a little while, stave off the angst of the modern world.
