by Donna Leon
Commissaro Guido Brunetti (evidently an established character) has another mystery to solve. A family has been broken apart by a police raid. Who is to blame? Why are these people in trouble? And where is the little child?
I had not read any of this author's mysteries before, and as is always the case when one jumps into the middle of the series, one feels a little left out by the chumminess of the characters. They're always referring to past escapades and explaining the past. It's a little annoying, but this book wasn't as bad as some.
The story is passable.
