Death at La Fenice


I just finished a reread of Donna Leon’s series of “police procedurals” set in Venice and featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti. What a joy they are! The theme is love much more than crime: love of family; colleagues; food and drink; literature; and the streets, canals, and light of Venice. Oh yes – politics, graft, greed – all that good stuff too. Start at the beginning with Death at La Fenice; you won’t regret it.
