Inspector Brunetti is called upon to investigate  the seemingly innocent plan of his father- in- law’s  best friend, the elderly Gonzalo Rodríguez de Tejeda, to adopt a much younger man as his son. Under Italian inheritance laws this man would become heir to Gonzalo’s entire fortune, a prospect Gonzalo’s friends find appalling. Not long after Gonzalo unexpectedly passes away, one of his oldest friends is strangled in her hotel room; now with an urgent case to solve, Brunetti is drawn reluctantly into the long-hidden mystery in Gonzalo’s life that ultimately led to murder…
Unto Us a Son is Given is the 28th Inspector Brunetti book, and once again, Donna Leon brilliantly follows the twists and turns of the human condition, reuniting us with some of crime fiction’s most memorable and enduring characters.
