When Venetian detective Commissario Guido Brunetti is called to investigate a presumed suicide in Venice's elite military academy, his inquiries are immediately met with a wall of silence. The young man is the son of a doctor and former politician, a man of an impeccable integrity all too rare in Italian politics. Dr. Moro seems devastated by his son's death; but while both he and his apparently estranged wife seem convinced that the boy would not have committed suicide, neither appears eager to talk to the police or to involve Brunetti in any kind of investigation into their son's death. Is the silence that confronts Brunetti the natural reluctance of Italians to involve themselves with the authorities, or is he facing a conspiracy far greater than this one death?… (mais)

Commisssario Brunetti is called out to the San Martino Military Academy — a cadet has been found dead by hanging. Immediate thought is suicide and it seems the commandant has no problem with that decision, as it doesn’t affect their reputation since relieves the academy of negative imagery, as the death is the fault of the cadet. Brunetti feels otherwise.

When Brunetti and his men try to question the other cadets, it is found there is a code of silence that has been ordered and to disobey it brings serious repercussions. He also finds there is a strong undercurrent among the students to maintain their outward solidarity, even though some cadets are there under family pressure and not for the honour of family military history. Many come from very prominent families who are involved in government and industry.

I am still enjoying the series, but this one has an ending I didn’t see coming. I’m still mulling it over in my mind. Not a bad thing! ( )

Military cult, privileged entitlement, secrets, lies, Italy/Venice, politics/corruption.
The writing is good and the wake-up call is alarming but applicable to any country. An uncomfortable but good read.
The audio is narrated very well by voice actor David Colacci. ( )

A mystery with an incomplete solution. It is more about Brunetti's coming to terms with himself and about the impossibilities of true Justice. A finger is pointed at greed and dishonesty in the Italian government and military but that becomes a symbol of human limitations. ( )

When we return to the Venetian world of Commissario Guido Brunetti he has found himself mired in the apparent suicide of a military cadet found hanging in a dormitory shower. It should be an open and shut case, but there is something about the death that doesn't sit right with Brunetti. Moro's father resigned from Parliament after Mrs. Moro was shot in an apparent hunting accident. Now Mr. Noro's son is dead. Is this retribution for his meddling in a corrupt investigation? As usual, Brunetti"s boss, Vice-Questore Patta, is eager to move on. Looks like a suicide, smells like a suicide, so it is a suicide. Hog-tied by political play, Patta would rather Brunetti poke his nose elsewhere. Brunetti is forced to bend the rules in order to solve the mystery.
Aside from the intriguing character of Guido Brunetti, Leon always illustrates Venice in a way that is mouth-watering and fills this reader with the yearning to pack her bags. ( )

Uniform Justice (2003) (Comm. Brunetti #12) by Donna Leon. A young man is found hanging in the showers at a military academy in Venice. He is a cadet there, but strangely it seems no one knows much about him. The boys won’t talk and the faculty won’t talk, and even his parents won’t say much of anything about him. It is up to Commissario Brunetti of the Venetian police to uncover the truth behind the death. Was it a suicide or murder?
The usually put-upon Brunetti is once again caught between the truth and the orders given to him by his boss, Vice-Questore Patta. As usual, Patta is busy playing politics, not wanting to disturb the corrupt factions which run the city. He wants a quick decision of suicide and then move on to other business. But Brunetti has an ace us his sleeve. The young man’s father was a member of Parliment who caused trouble with a corruption investigation. He resigned his position after his wife was shot in an “accident”, and now, two years later, his son is dead.
All just chance coincidence?
Brunetti and Inspector Vianello do this usual diligent work in the investigation. The truth is uncovered but, in a nod to the truth of the world, the guilty walk free.
I found this novel to be different but the same as the others I have read in the series. It seems Brunetti and Vianello are always working against the system that applauds corruption at the highest levels, leaves power in the hands of those most likely to abuse it, and shows no regard for the people they are supposed to be looking out for.
Strikes close to home, doesn’t it?
It is a nice depiction of the wonders of Venice, especially if you follow, on line, the trail of Brunetti and company as they move about this marvelous old city. Take a virtual tour with them as guides and you will have a wonderful time. And while the reason for the story is different, it felt as if I’ve read this plot many times over. ( )

A powerful indictment of an Italian society in which “scandal had the same shelf life as fresh fish: by the third day, both were worthless; one because it had begun to stink, the other because it no longer did.”

This is an outstanding book, deserving of the widest audience possible, a chance for American readers to again experience a master practitioner's art.

When Venetian detective Commissario Guido Brunetti is called to investigate a presumed suicide in Venice's elite military academy, his inquiries are immediately met with a wall of silence. The young man is the son of a doctor and former politician, a man of an impeccable integrity all too rare in Italian politics. Dr. Moro seems devastated by his son's death; but while both he and his apparently estranged wife seem convinced that the boy would not have committed suicide, neither appears eager to talk to the police or to involve Brunetti in any kind of investigation into their son's death. Is the silence that confronts Brunetti the natural reluctance of Italians to involve themselves with the authorities, or is he facing a conspiracy far greater than this one death?
