Suffer the Little Children

Donna Leon’s charming evocative and addictive Commissario Guido Brunetti series continues with Suffer the Little Children When Commissario Brunetti is summoned in the middle of the night to the hospital bed of a senior pediatrician he is confronted with uestions than answers Three men a young Carabiniere captain and two. This Brunetti installment has almost everything descriptions of hospital attendants drinking grappa a new history for Brunetti to read discussions on the state of Italian government a far right fascist as part of the plot contemporary racism in Italian society What it does not have a cohesive mystery Never change Donna LeonIn theory Brunetti and the Venetian police tangle with the Carabiniere over an adoption scandal while Vianello investigates pharmaceutical fraud in digital medical records The cases intersect in some surprising ways and there is no real resolution view spoilerafter all of the discussion about the child vanishing into the foster care system Marcolini never gets him back That s realistic but it felt cruel to end the book on the revelation that his wife had instigated the boy s removal and then not have any catharsis afterwards Again probably realistic but not satisfying as a reader hide spoiler

review Suffer the Little Children

Privates from out of town have burst into the doctor's apartment in the middle of the night attacked him and taken away his eighteenth month old baby boy What could have motivated an assault by the forces of the state so violent it has left the doctor mute Who would have authorized such an alarming operation At the same ti. This was my favorite Brunetti series so far I have read about half of them Mostly out of order btwBut this one has excellent interplay with the Italian laws re child placements and adoptions etc Lots of good snooping to ferret out the reality Elettra has to do some acting and undercover too I love when she just a secretary gets into the mixDonna Leon really knows Venice and can write a good mystery for locale ambiance character development and continuity physical description And not for plotting as a core pivot or any speed in action That s not what this series progression is about This has been added after I read nearly 20 of the books for this series If you d want to pick 4 or 5 best from the last 10 when the characters have become defined and are now at their most nuanced to the communications between them all the prime players and the relatives and the hierarchy that exists I would pick this particular 16 and also Beastly Things as two of those 4 or 5 They are IMHO absolutely the cream of the crop and representative of the best of the series

    This was a first for me in many regards My first Donna Leon book by extension my first Brunetti my first foray into the mystery genre my first police protagonist my first story set in the realworld and so on Ergo I expect the following to smack a little of the kind of delight only to be found in naivety and ignorance so take it with a pinch of salt or a few sachets whatever suits your tasteI'll get this out of the way first; this is an in

    Pleased this library audio came available via overdrive as David Colacci's narration makes the story take on a life of its own Truly enjoyable hours spent today in Venice as GuidoBrunetti pursues solutions and unravels political knots surrounding adoptions

    I read this book because it was a selection for my book club many of whom had visited Venice or other parts of Italy during the past year I know there are a multitude of Donna Leon fans who will vehemently disagree with this review However this book did not deliver on the potential for the story's premise I felt let down at the end of the book not because of the ending but because the book seemed shallow the characters lapse into

  10. says:

    It's always a civilised pleasure to be back in Venice in the humane company of Brunetti This book is in some ways about the background and build up to a crime than it is about solving one and the novel almost leaves you with the uestion of where the greater crime has been committed It is a sad book in many way
