Drawing Conclusions (Guido Brunetti Series #20)

Drawing Conclusions - Donna Leon The first chapter didn't seem promising, but I stuck with it and I'm glad that I did. The neighbor who finds the dead woman turns out to have nothing further to do with the story. I'm glad of that, because her story didn't seem particularly interesting to me. But it was a bit of a dead end. Odd. Anyway, getting to know Commissario Brunetti was a pleasure and I guess I will have plenty of other opportunities to explore him, as she has many other books with him. Although I didn't understand all of the nuances of Italian politics, I did appreciate the nuanced approach to "crime," right/wrong, regret, old age, etc.
