About the Author

Donna Leon, born in New Jersey in 1942, has worked as a travel guide in Rome and as a copywriter in London. She taught literature in universities in Iran, China, and Saudi Arabia. Commissario Brunetti made her books world-famous. Donna Leon lived in Italy for many years, and although she now lives in Switzerland, she often visits Venice.

Reviews

"Leon moves with ease through this serene and secretive city, penetrating every level of its complicated social strata. And when she gets to the corrupt core of her story, this elegant stylist shows she can also write in a fine, cold fury."--The New York Times Book Review

"Another captivating mystery featuring the most humane sleuth since Georges Simenon's Inspector Maigret."--The Philadelphia Inquirer

"[Brunetti's] most difficult and politically sensitive case to date . . . complex and filled with charm, humor, and intelligence."--Booklist

"Knit[s] together her strengths: endearing detective, jaundiced social pathology, and a paranoid eye for plotting on a grand scale."--Kirkus Reviews
