'when she's writing about her beloved venice, donna leon can do no wrong.' the new york times when important information is leaked from inside the venetian questura, commissario guido brunetti is entrusted with the task of uncovering which of his colleagues is responsible. But before brunetti can begin his investigation, he is surprised by the appearance in his office of a friend of his wife's, who is fearful that her son is using drugs. A few weeks later, tullio gasparini, the woman's husband, is found unconscious with a serious head injury at the foot of a bridge, and brunetti is drawn to pursue a possible connection to the boy's behaviour. But the truth is not straightforward. Following various contradictory leads, brunetti navigates his way through a world of mysterious informants, underground deals and secret longstanding scam networks, all the while growing ever more impressed by the intuition of his fellow commissario, claudia griffoni, and by the endless resourcefulness of signorina elettra, vice questore patta's secretary and gate keeper. With gasparini's condition showing no signs of improvement, and his investigations leading nowhere, brunetti is steadied by the embrace of his own family and by his passion for the classics. He turns to sophocles's antigone in an attempt to understand the true purpose of justice, and, in its light, he is forced to consider the terrible consequences to which the actions of a tender heart can lead.
