book premiere. German voice: Annett Renneberg (aka Signorina Elettra)
Elisabetta Foscarini, Brunetti's childhood friend and still a beauty, one day appears in the Questura. Could Brunetti covertly investigate who is threatening her daughter's family? Concrete evidence is missing. After all, who would wish harm to a veterinarian and an accountant who worked for a charitable foundation? Brunetti is already about to dismiss the whole thing as excessive maternal concern when an attack occurs that reveals human abysses.
