Uniform justice
Donna Leon
Adult Fiction LEON

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: "This internationally best-selling novelist has captivated fans throughout the world with her ever adroit, big-hearted Venetian detective Commissario Guido Brunetti. The Guardian raved that Leon's Brunetti series is ""crime writing of the highest order: powerful, relevant, and all too full of human failings."" As Uniform Justice opens Brunetti is called to investigate a parent's worst nightmare: A young cadet has been found hanged, a presumed suicide, in Venice's elite military academy. Brunetti's sorrow for the boy, so close in age to his own son, is rivaled only by his contempt for a community that is more concerned with protecting the reputation of the school, and its privileged students, than this tragedy. As Brunetti pursues his inquiry, he is faced with a wall of silence. Is the military protecting its own? And what of the other witnesses? Is this the natural reluctance of Italians to involve themselves with the authorities, or is Brunetti facing a conspiracy far greater than this one death?"
