  1. This series has been recommended to me for some time now, but the first I have seen of it was a Kindle special this month I really liked the book, and I really liked the characters It is book 2 of the series, but the first I have read of it.I enjoyed the tour of Italy I got in this book, and appreciated the foreign intrigue I have read a few other books set in Italy, so some of the terminology was familiar This book deals with an American Army doctor that gets killed in or near Venice Commissari [...]


  2. NOW I UNDERSTAND why so many people are crazy about Donna Leon s detective fiction Death in a Strange Country, published in 1993, was the second in her series featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti of the Venice Police, and it s nothing short of brilliant I d made the mistake of reading her latest offering in the series, the twenty fourth, Falling in Love, which I found unworthy of her reputation Death in a Strange Country redeems her in my eyes.The story in this novel revolves around two murder m [...]


  3. I have loved these stories of Commissario Brunetti and his unique approach to solving the crimes he is assigned in the past The setting in Italy is a special treat But in this book I picked up an aspect of the culture I had not absorbed before With her great history , religious heritage, architecture, strong families,and s, her people have learned not to trust those in authority and government with good reason The defeatist attitude and cynicism toward infamous corruption is presented here throu [...]

  5. I really like Brunetti, and I love the Venetian setting of these books I love the politics that come into it, and the way the Venetian life style is depicted so very different from the tourist version But I was a bit disappointed in this story It contained all of the above, but it what it didn t really have at the centre of it was a murder mystery, sadly My overall impression was that the author had a germ of an idea, but it simply wasn t enough to fill the book hence my view that there was some [...]


  6. The second of the long running Brunetti series and here we see Leon introducing a politicised element to her emotive story telling issues of the American army in Europe, of toxic waste and high level cover ups merge with domestic scenes in Venice Especially potent are the portraits of a Sicilian mother and her petty criminal son and the ambiguous activities of Brunetti s own father in law.Offsetting the darker elements are scenes of comedy in Brunetti s ongoing feud with Patta, his boss and the [...]
