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?

I like this series, and Commissario Brunetti is a good man, but this is book is darker than most. In this book, it is evident that most people in power take action only when it benefits them personally and/or politically; no one but Brunetti appears to care about what is right and just. This is discouraging, as it feels like the US is headed the same direction.
