Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The sophisticated but still moral Brunetti, with his love of food and his loving family, proves a worthy custodian of timeless values and verities.” Wall Street Journal, praise for the series
“In this stunning novel…featuring dogged, intuitive Venetian police detective Guido Brunetti…combines an engrossing, complex plot with an indictment of the corruption endemic to Italian society...dark, cynical tale of widespread secrecy, violence, and corruption.” Publishers Weekly (starred review), praise for Blood from a Stone
“The evocative Venetian setting and the warmth and humanity of the Brunetti family add considerable pleasure to this nuanced, intelligent mystery…Highly recommended.” Library Journal (starred review), praise for Blood from a Stone
“The appeal of Guido Brunetti, the hero of Donna Leon’s long-running Venetian crime series, comes not from his shrewdness, though he is plenty shrewd, nor from his quick wit. It comes, instead, from his roll as an everyman…Not so different from our own days at the office or nights around the dinner table. Crime fiction for those willing to grapple with, rather than escape, the uncertainties of daily life.” Booklist (starred review), praise for the series
