Donna Leon. When a friend of Commissario Guido Brunetti's brother, a priest recently returned from years of missionary work in Africa, calls on the Commissario with a request, Brunetti suspects the man has hidden motives. A new, American-style Christian sect has begun to meet in private homes in the city, and it's possible the priest is merely apprehensive of the competition.

Maybe Palermitani aren't so bad after all, huh! The quality of life in Venice may be sinking faster than the island itself, as local fruit stands now carry only tourist knickknacks and the wait for the vaporetto grows ever longer. The story is interesting, if very slow moving. Odd as it seems, we lapsed or at least not as faithful Catholics still pine to understand why, in the words of the young scholar-prince in Shoes of the Fisherman, we "hate her and yet love her" but cannot rationalize our contradicted emotions. Sometimes politics and money and being at the right place a bit too late all get in the way.
