Friends in High Places: A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery | Donna Leon
1 post | 3 read | 1 to read
In Friends in High Places, Commissario Brunetti is visited by a young bureaucrat investigating the lack of official approval for the construction of Brunettis apartment years before. What began as a red tape headache ends in murder when the bureaucrat is later found dead after a mysterious fall from a scaffold. Brunetti starts an investigation that will take him into the unfamiliar and dangerous areas of drug abuse and loan-sharking, and will reveal, once again, what a difference it makes in Venice to have friends in high places.

Pickpick

Brunetti foresees trouble when he is visited on a weekend by a Venetian government official who informs him that his apartment does not appear in the records and may need to be torn down. He does not foresee that the official will end up dead a few days later. Was it murder? The 9th book in the series is a standard entry and was interesting to read. The level of government corruption in Italy is mind blowing. 4.0/5.0 ⭐️ #2019
