First Sentence A man and a woman deep in conversation approached the steps of Pone dei Lustraferi both looking hot and uncomfortable on this late July afternoonBenedetta Toso a dying hospice patient who asks to speak with the police claims her husband Vittorio Fadalto was murdered over bad money Commissario Brunetti and his colleague Claudia Griffoni promise to investigate the matter but was it murder or an accident Suspicions mount as they learn about Vittorio s job collecting samples of water to be tested for contamination Piecing together the tangled threads Brunetti comes to realize the perilous meaning in the woman s accusation and the threat it reveals to the health of the entire regionWith an excellent beginning one learns that being a Neapolitan in Venice is a far greater handicap than being a woman and that one may not want to visit Venice during the summer Leon s voice is always a pleasure When talking about the heat she conveys the sense of it without referencing it directly Brunetti realized only then how hot he was He tried to lift his right leg but it was glued to the chair by sweat It is these touches that bring Venice to life by allowing us to see the city as those who live there doThere is a second plot thread of two Romany pickpockets It is interesting to learn the differences between how crimes are handled in Italy versus the United States The secondary plot does raise interesting pointsLeon s descriptions from the route to an address Brunetti takes that only a resident would know to his description of a room badly decorated to food are a delight and bring the city to life Even a plate of sandwiches at a bar sound good From the sides of the sandwiches spilled ham egg tomato tuna salad radicchio rucola shrimp artichokes asparagus and olives Leon is wonderful at injecting verbal exchanges to make one chuckle When called into his boss s office Signorina Elettra remarks If you aren t out in fifteen minutes I ll call the police However she is also very good at making one pause and consider as with Bruno s conversation with a nurse But if you work with death you have to become spiritual or you can t do it any when they get close to the end you can sense their spirit or you sense that it s there They do too And it helps them And us She knows how to touch one s emotions Griffoniraised a hand and threw open her palm as if to release the dead woman s spirit into the air The three of them remained silent for enough time to allow that spirit to escape the room There is something wonderful about a policeman who reads Lysistrata for pleasure and describes Agamemnon as a windbag commander The relationship between Brunetti and his wife Paoli adds normality It is one of a couple who has been married a long time and still loves one another An interesting characteristic of Leon is that when her characters are in a professional setting she references them by their surnames yet when in a personal setting or amongst one another as friends she uses their first namesLeon is incredibly good at building a story She takes one along with her through the steps with an amazing subtlety to the cluesTrace Elements is a police procedural without car chases or gunplay but with a somewhat political theme It is a very contemporary mystery with a contemporary crime It reflects on the degradation of true justice in our time and on compromise For some the ending may not seem satisfactory but upon reflection there is some small justice amidst justice that cannot be achievedTRACE ELEMENTS PolProc Comm Guido Brunetti Venice Contemp VG Leon Donna 29th in series Atlantic Monthly Mar 2020
