Home Blood From A Stone. In passing years, more and more of them have appeared on the streets, and the people in the city are less tolerant, or at least that's my sense of what I hear in the bars. She skillfully uses her good Commissario, his family, and his colleagues to make political and social statements about Italy and global problems.
The story begins with the execution-style murder of an illegal African street vendor in a busy Venetian campo while he was attempting to sell his fake designer handbags to a group of American tourists. With the help of his loyal sidekick Vianello, and the stunning, computer savvy Signorina Elettra, he gets a foothold on the case when he locates where the victim lived. Naturally, Brunetti, determined to find out what is behind all this intrigue, disobeys and has to tap into his connected and powerful father-in-law, Count Falier, in his search for answers.
