In Friends in High Places, Commissario Guido Brunetti is visited by a young bureaucrat investigating the lack of approval for the building of Brunetti’s apartment years before. What began as a red tape headache ends in murder when the bureaucrat is later found dead after a mysterious fall from a scaffold. Brunetti starts an investigation that will take him into the unfamiliar and dangerous areas of drug abuse and loan-sharking, and will reveal, once again, what a difference it makes in Venice to have friends in high places.

Quotes & Awards

  • “All Donna Leon’s novels are excellent in their evocation of place, while in Brunetti she has created a character who becomes more real in each book…However, Friends in High Places is by far the best and marks a quantum leap forward.”

    Evening Standard (London)

  • “Leon is a skillful plotter…Brunetti is a nicely shaded creation, a moral man who is also all too human. Friends in High Places is a splendid read, clever and provoking.”

    Observer (London)

  • Friends in High Places is an elegant police procedural set in beautifully imagined Venice.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • Winner of the CWA Silver Dagger in 2000
