9780099536581: Friends in High Places

Commissario Brunetti is visited by a young bureaucrat concerning the lack of official approval for the building of his apartment years before. His first reaction, like any other Venetian, even a cop, is to think of whom he knows who might bring pressure to bear on the relevant local government department. But when the bureaucrat rings him at work, clearly scared by some information he plans to tell Brunetti, and is then found dead after falling from scaffolding, some-thing is clearly going on that has implications rather greater than the fate of Brunetti's own apartment. Brunetti's investigations take him into unfamiliar areas of Venetian life - drug abuse and loan-sharking - while the deaths of two young drug addicts and the arrest -and subsequent release - of his boss's son on suspicion of drug-dealing reveal, once again, what a difference it makes in Venice to have friends in high places.

About the Author:

A New Yorker of Irish/Spanish descent, Donna Leon first went to Italy in 1965, returning regularly over the next decade or so while pursuing a career as an academic in the States and then later in Iran, China and finally Saudi Arabia. It was after a period in Saudi Arabia, which she found ‘damaging physically and spiritually’ that Donna decided to move to Venice, where she has now lived for over twenty years.

Her debut as a crime fiction writer began as a joke: talking in a dressing room in Venice’s opera-house La Fenice after a performance, Donna and a singer friend were vilifying a particular German conductor. From the thought ‘why don’t we kill him?’ and discussion of when, where and how, the idea for Death at La Fenice took shape, and was completed over the next four months.

Donna Leon is the crime reviewer for the London Sunday Times and is an opera expert. She has written the libretto for a comic opera, entitled Dona Gallina. Set in a chicken coop, and making use of existing baroque music, Donna Gallina was premiered in Innsbruck. Brigitte Fassbaender, one of the great mezzo-sopranos of our time, and now head of the Landestheater in Innsbruck, agreed to come out of retirement both to direct the opera and to play the part of the witch Azuneris (whose name combines the names of the two great Verdi villainesses Azucena and Amneris).

From AudioFile:

Mystery fans who are looking for a change of scenery and international ambience should get to know Guido Brunetti, commissario of the Venice police. Anna Fields deftly narrates this well-drawn plot of political corruption, murder, and drugs. Fields is at home in the city and canals of Venice. She brings forward the complexities of Brunetti's character, balancing his compassion and idealism with a tough cynicism born of many years experience with the bureaucrats and the powerful of Venice. Fields maintains a good pace for building the framework of clues that fit neatly together in unexpected ways. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
