Uniform Justice: A Commissario Brunetti Novel

by Donna Leon

Grove/atlantic, Inc. | December 1, 2007 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Uniform Justice: A Commissario Brunetti Novel is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
As Uniform Justice opens, Venetian detective Commissario Guido Brunetti is called to investigate a parent's worst nightmare. A young cadet has been found hanged, a presumed suicide, in Venice's elite military academy. Brunetti's sorrow for the boy, so close in age to his own son, is rivaled only by his contempt for a community that is more concerned with protecting the reputation of the school, and its privileged students, than understanding this tragedy. The young man is the son of a doctor and former politician, a man of an impeccable integrity all too rare in Italian politics. Dr. Moro is clearly and understandably devastated by his son's death; but while both he and his apparently estranged wife seem convinced that the boy's death could not have been suicide, neither appears eager to talk to the police or involve Brunetti in any investigation of the circumstances in which he died. As Brunetti pursues his inquiry, he is faced with a wall of silence. Is the military protecting its own? And what of the other witnesses? Is this the natural reluctance of Italians to involve themselves with the authorities, or is Brunetti facing a conspiracy far greater than this one death?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Commissario Guido Brunetti #12 "Uniform Justice" is the 12th book in Donna Leon's mystery series featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti. Jacket notes: "Neither Commissario Brunetti nor his wife Paolo have ever had much sympathy for the Italian armed forces, so when a young cadet is found hanged, a presumed suicide, in Venice’s elite military academy, Brunetti’s emotions are complex: pity and sorrow for the death of a boy, close in age to his own son, and contempt and irritation for the arrogance and high-handedness of the boy’s teachers and fellow-students. The young man is the son of a doctor and former politician, a man of an impeccable integrity all too rare in Italian politics. Dr. Moro is clearly and understandably devastated by his son’s death; but neither appears at all keen to talk to the police nor involve Brunetti in any investigation of the circumstances in which he died." As i have mentioned many times before, i love reading this series. The crimes are often simple but the complexity that lies behind them keep me thinking and coming back for more. Every book that features Brunetti gives more insight into his personal life and his personality...both of which are vital aspects in the way that Brunetti goes about solving each crime. He bases much of his detective thinking on his own life experiences, values, and beliefs and this makes Leon's books ideal for when i just want to read something comforting and familiar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rich novel Another rich and beautifully written mystery, the story seems real rather than fictional; more true to life. It is evident in this book that Ms Leon has an aversion to corruption in the justice system. This author is a master in my view in developing atmosphere, her characters are so real and the plot very believable.
