A psychological thriller

Finished July 5
Suffer the Little Children by Donna Leon
This mystery in the Commissario Guido Brunetti series set in Venice is a gem. Brunetti's wife plays a role in this story, but his children are not as evident as the are in some others. Brunetti gets drawn into a case run by the carabinieri in which a doctor is injured when his home is invaded. As Brunetti and his co-workers try to figure out what is going on, with the doctor, with illegally adopted children, and with false doctor visits, some questions are answered, others lead to more questions, and ethics and morality rear their heads. Wonderful!
