A good man who loves his family and his city, Commissario Guido Brunetti is relentless in his pursuit of truth and some measure of justice. In Earthly Remains, Brunetti's endurance is tested more than ever before. During an interrogation of an entitled, arrogant man suspected of giving drugs to a young girl who then died, Brunetti acts rashly, doing something he will quickly come to regret. In the fallout, he realizes that he needs a break, needs to get away from the stifling problems of his work.

Convoluted plot revealed in long tedious conversations, with a non- ending, unsatisfying conclusion. Not up to usual standards.
