Earthly Remains, the twenty-sixth installment in this mystery series. A kind, but rash act sets the stage for a break from work for Guido. His wife, Paola, finds the perfect spot for his break: a villa on Sant’Erasmo, owned by one of her relatives. As Guido recuperates, he rows in the lagoon with a villa’s caretaker, Davide Casati, who had once rowed competitively with Guido’s father. With great plotting skill, Leon draws us into the depths of the story, revealing gradually the long term consequences of choices made over time. Readers who love this series are those most likely to be pleased with this addition. New readers can start here or anywhere and be delighted with interesting characters and the joy of a mystery solved.
