(Book 14 in the Guido Brunetti series)

"illegal aliens," presumably Senegalese, sell fake handbags on the street; when one of them is killed gangland style, Brunetti gets involved. His daughter's racist comment causes a family crisis that makes him think, as he tries to solve the crime that his boss removes from his jurisdiction (and takes away the records). Brunetti and Vianelli can't leave well enough alone, and keep pursuing the mystery, which gets more complex. The ending is indeed strange to Western eyes, but Brunetti is wise enough to understand it and accept it. I liked that ending to a very disturbing situation.

I was OK with this book until the last few pages where the plot took such an unexpected turn that I found it unbelievable. That said, the characterizations of the Brunetti family remain very good.
