Although I have enjoyed every single one of Donna Leon's Commissario Brunetti novels, this one stands out from a solid crowd of winners as her best work. Because Leon avoids easy answers and neat endings, the sense of satisfaction (or justice) at the end of her mysteries is usually somewhat tempered and can leave you feeling ambivalent about the denouement. Friends in High Places is a grand slam, well-written all the way through, with fewer insights into Brunetti as a father but more of him as a husband, more of him as a native Venetian, and a closer look at Signorina Elletra, all of which are superb.

If I weren't so dedicated to PBS, I would keep this book forever! But I loved it so much, I have to share it.
