Praise for Donna Leon's Commissario Guido Brunetti Mysteries: -Leon is the ideal author for people who vaguely long for a 'good mystery' . . .That Leon is also a brilliant writer should only add to the consistently comforting appeal of her Venetian procedurals featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti, an immensely likable police detective who takes every murder to heart.- --Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review -Few detective writers create so vivid, inclusive, and convincing a narrative as Donna Leon . . . One of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever.- --Washington Post -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 -[Leon] uses the relatively small and crime-free canvas of Venice for rips about Italian life, sexual styles and-best of all-the kind of ingrown business and political corruption that seems to lurk just below the surface.- --Chicago Tribune -Hers is an unusually potent cocktail of atmosphere and event.- --New Yorker -For those who know Venice, or want to, Brunetti is a well-versed escort to the nooks, crannies, moods, and idiosyncrasies of what residents call La Serenissima, the Serene One . . . Richly atmospheric, [Leon] introduces you to the Venice insiders know.- --USA Today -Donna Leon is the undisputed crime fiction queen . . . Leon's ability to capture the social scene and internal politics [of Venice] is first-rate.- --Baltimore Sun -Terrific at providing, through its weary but engaging protagonist, a strong sense of the moral quandaries inherent in Italian society and culture.- --San Francisco Chronicle -Brunetti is one of the most attractive policemen in crime fiction today.- --Philadelphia Inquirer -As always, Brunetti is highly attuned to (and sympathetic toward) the failings of the humans around him.- --Seattle Times -Fabulous.- --Kansas City Star -Leon's writing trembles with true feeling.- --Minneapolis Star Tribune -Compassionate yet incorruptible, Brunetti knows that true justice doesn't always end in an arrest or a trial.- --Publishers Weekly -[Brunetti] is a superb police detective-calm, deliberate, and insightful as he investigates with a reflective thoroughness.- --Library Journal -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 role as an Everyman . . . [his life is] 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 -I never turn down a Brunetti mystery . . . It is amazingly easy to jump on board with any particular book and work your way backward or forward. Leon is masterful at filling in the blanks of the past for newbies while keeping the current story going . . . [She] continues to pull back the veil on one of the world's most exotic cities, revealing aspects of it that few people have seen and that most do not even know exist.- --Bookreporter
