9780143123248: Beastly Things (Commissario Guido Brunetti)

From the author of The Waters of Eternal Youth, twenty-first Commissario Brunetti mystery and Donna Leon’s biggest New York Times bestseller yet

It’s no wonder that Donna Leon’s latest mystery debuted on the New York Times bestseller list at number ten. The series’s tantalizing crimes, Venetian setting, and much-loved commissario are a winning combination that continues to earn critical acclaim and a growing readership around the globe.

In Beastly Things, Leon lives up to her reputation as a writer unafraid to address the corruption underlying La Serenissima’s outward beauty. When an unidentified murder victim winds up in a canal, Brunetti travels beyond his usual sphere to find the connection between the dead man and a local slaughterhouse.

Review:

"The book is written with that depth of thought about crime and humanity that characterises the best of Leon's work." -- Jane Jakeman Independent "[A] fine, atmospheric novel...Twenty-one books on, [Leon] has lost none of her delightful skill and wit." -- Mark Sanderson Evening Standard "Donna Leon's elegant and compelling crime novels enjoy great success throughout the world. On the surface, this is another entry in a reliable long-running series. But it's also an oblique addressing of some complex issues with typical intelligence and perception." -- Barry Forshaw The Good Book Guide "Beastly Things is a perfect accompaniment to a hot day and a cool glass of white wine. Superb." Crimesquad "[Leon's] books paint such an appealing portrait of modern Venetian life that they've sent droves of holidaymakers to the city." Press Association
