Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Beloved Commissario Guido Brunetti once again finds himself pursuing a puzzling case his fellow policemen would rather leave closed. What appears to be a cut-and-dried murder case pinpoints an elderly lady's maid as her killer. But Brunetti comes to a different conclusion and decides--unofficially--to take on the case himself.

Library Journal Review

Commissario Brunetti, a sleuth equal to Easy Rawlins, Lou Harper, and Philip Marlowe, appreciates the subtle differences between justice and revenge, embarrassment and humiliation, compulsion and corruption. A master of bureaucratic misdirection and an astute judge of character, Brunetti skillfully navigates the canals of Venetian subterfuge, while remaining unusually close to his intuitive spouse. In Doctored Evidence, a Romanian housekeeper is accused of murdering her Euro-pinching employer. Only Brunetti believes in her innocence, and his investigation leads him to an astonishingly apt and scholarly conclusion. In Uniform Justice, Brunetti investigates the suspicious suicide of a young military cadet at a prestigious academy, and with customary aplomb finds the underlying cause for the young man's death. David Colacci capably narrates both works; although his voice is distinctly American, he handles the Italian pronunciations with ease. Both works belong in public libraries; very highly recommended.-Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
