Description

‘The Venetian settings are en-chanting and Commissario Guido Brunetti’s investigative methods are drolly amusing. But it’s the living, bleeding humanity of the characters that makes Donna Leon’s police procedurals so engaging … Tagging along after this sleuth is a wonderful way to see Venice like a native, especially since Leon takes care to give us precise directions for his routes.’ New York Times Book Review

Named a Best Crime Book of the Year by Marilyn Stasio for the New York Times Book Review
