Details: no 2. Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery
When the body of an American man is fished out of one of the many Venetian canals it appears that he was killed during a mugging. Brunetti, however, is convinced there is more to the murder.
His investigation takes Brunetti to an American military base in a near by town, where he discovers something in the American's apartment that makes him think he's dealing with a cover up. And a second death only confirms his suspicions.
But up against the might of the US military as well as the equally powerful as corrupt Italian authorities, justice might just be out of his reach.
I really enjoy this series. I like Brunetti and the way his family appears in the story without distracting me from the mystery.
