Description
The latest case in Donna Leon?s bestselling Brunetti mystery series??one of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever? (The Washington Post)

The Philadelphia Inquirer called Leon?s incomparable creation Commissario Guido Brunetti ?the most humane sleuth since Georges Simenon?s Inspector Maigret.? It?s no wonder then that Leon?s legion of fans continues to grow with each new book that?s published. In Through a Glass, Darkly, Brunetti investigates the murder of a night watchman, whose body is found in front of a blazing furnace at Giovanni De Cal?s glass factory along with an annotated copy of Dante?s Inferno. Did the cantankerous De Cal kill him? Will Brunetti make the connection between the work of literature and the murderer in time?

Description
On a luminous spring day in Venice, Commissario Brunetti and his assistant Vianello play hooky from the Questura in order to help Vianello's friend Marco Ribetti, arrested during an environmental protest. They secure his release, only to be faced by the fury of the man's father-in-law, Giovanni De Cal, a cantankerous glass factory owner who has been heard in the bars of Murano making violent threats about Ribetti. Brunetti's curiosity is piqued, and he finds himself drawn to Murano to investigate. Is De Cal the type of man to carry out his threats? Then one morning the body of De Cal's night watchman is found.
