Originally published in 2003, and number twelve of now 23 mysteries set in present-day Venice, this volume tackles the question of the military mindset and how it fits into larger Italian society. Another theme here which Leon often touches on is the rampant corruption in Italy’s government and bureaucracy. A cadet, of the same age as Brunetti’s son, is found hanged, presumably a suicide. His father served briefly in the Italian parliament, and was the rarest of all birds there, an honest politician. For this particular book you may download the eBook or audiobook to your electronic device, read the paperback, hardcover or large print edition, or listen to the book on audio CDs.
