In Friends in High Places, Commissario Brunetti is visited by a young bureaucrat investigating the lack of official approval for the construction 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.

Another Brunetti mystery in which our hero knows what happened but, in this case, is legally forbidden from acting on it. But having seen murder, drug addiction, and the devastating, trickled-down consequences of Venice's pathological greed, Brunetti must question his own complicity in a system that damns him for his presence in it. An honest man may have one recourse left, but to what extent will it compromise his decency?
