Review:

Praise for Falling In Love

A New York Times Bestseller

Donna Leon’s first love is opera. . . . So choosing Teatro La Fenice for the setting of Falling in Love, her latest mystery featuring the erudite and oh-so-sympathetic Commissario Guido Brunetti, makes this elegant novel something of a mash note to a longtime lover. . . . The audacious investigation, conducted by Brunetti’s confederate Signorina Elettra, into the psychology of stalkers is thorough and illuminating. But for opera buffs, going backstage at Teatro La Fenice is the real treat.” New York Times Book Review

[A] widely admired series . . . Brunetti is unfailingly good company, and when he isn’t . . . he is wonderfully refreshing.” Chicago Tribune

The ever-incredible Leon’s 24th stunning entry in her stellar mysteries featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti brings the series full circle, revisiting Venice’s Teatro La Fenice. . . . Another provocative addition to a fine series, certain to appeal to aficionados of profound literary mysteries such as Louise Penny’s How the Light Gets In.” Library Journal (starred review)

For many fans, the high points in Leon’s beloved Guido Brunetti series have been the two novels featuring opera diva Flavia Petrelli . . . . Now, finally, Flavia returns . . . . Best of all, the reappearance of Flavia gives Leon the opportunity to display her deep love of music and to construct a marvelous climactic scene between Flavia and her fan that parallels the finale of Tosca. Brava!” Booklist (starred review)

Leon’s devoted readers love her books for their juicy mystery plots, and also for the rich and varied cast of recurring characters, among which is the city of Venice itself. . . . Leon’s evildoers are not psychopathic serial killers or rapists. . . . [She] delves into the more interesting territory of moral corruption, in all its forms.” Publishers Weekly (author profile)

Commissario Guido Brunetti returns to La Fenice for another dramatic encounter with the diva Flavia Petrelli . . . there are the usual pleasures of following Brunetti as he walks around the city he knows like the back of his hand.” Kirkus Reviews

Splendid . . . Leon makes us feel [Venice’s] magic, taste it, smell it . . . Falling in Love is altogether a bravura accomplishment.” Open Letters

Another entertaining installment in one of mystery fiction’s most consistent series.” Bookreporter.com

Leon . . . infuses even predictable scenes with fresh vitality, employing her subtle wit and psychological acuity to make well-loved characters freshly engaging. . . . [the] finale is engrossing and oddly moving; a fitting end to a Brunetti thriller that is also a rare portrait of an artist and her art.” Barnes & Noble Review

[A] captivating series . . . [Falling in Love] offers the usual combination of mystery and dread.” Toronto Star

Thrilling . . . Readers will not be disappointed. Whether you’ve solved cases with Brunetti from the start or are a first time guest, this book will hold you spellbound . . . . [Falling in Love] will grab you from the first page, keep you on the edge of your seat, and leave you breathless while yearning for more, as if you’ve just witnessed a spectacularly powerful performance at the opera.” Killer Nashville

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Death at La Fenice, Donna Leon s first novel in the Commissario Brunetti series, readers were introduced to the glamorous and cut-throat world of opera and to one of Italy s finest living sopranos, Flavia Petrelli - then a suspect in the poisoning of a renowned German conductor. Now, many years after Brunetti cleared her name, Flavia has returned to the illustrious La Fenice to sing the lead in Tosca. As an opera superstar, Flavia is well acquainted with attention from adoring fans and aspiring singers. But when one anonymous admirer inundates her with bouquets of yellow roses - on stage, in her dressing room and even inside her locked apartment - it becomes clear that this fan has become a potentially dangerous stalker. Distraught, Flavia turns to an old friend for help. Familiar with Flavia s melodramatic temperament, Commissario Brunetti is at first unperturbed by her story, but when another young opera singer is attacked he begins to think Flavia s fears may be justified. In order to keep his friend out of danger, Brunetti must enter the psyche of an obsessive fan and find the culprit before anyone comes to harm. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9781784750749
