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 behavior. But the truth is not

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.
