Review quote

"The arrival of a new Donna Leon book fills me with pleasurable anticipation. She tells a good story, including the best of all current police detectives, Commissario Brunetti, and locates it in a superbly described Venice. The plot is beautifully constructed. The climax is exciting and disturbing ... Brunetti is as irresistible as ever" The Scotsman "Donna Leon goes from strength to strength ... This is her tenth novel but it's as fresh and entertaining as the first" The Observer "Mesmerising" Express on Sunday "A splendid series ... with a backdrop so vivid you can smell it" Sunday Telegraph "Brunetti is hard to beat - Leon's tenth novel more than maintains the standard of its predecessors" TLS
