In the 30th Commissario Brunetti novel, Donna Leon continues her love story to Venice with another crime investigation. Like many of the past books, the actual crime is not the focus of the investigation, rather it is the steppingstone to questionable people involved in the crime. When Brunetti becomes interested in the dumping of two unconscious American women at a hospital, his curiosity leads him to a human trafficking business. The ending was too abrupt for me. I really wanted to know what happened to the two young Italian men who were caught up in this mess, but I can imagine the ending I want. I am satisfied Brunetti has used his intelligence to solve another case.
