It doesn't take long for Brunetti to realise why he remembers the dead man - he saw him at a demonstration a couple of years ago, where farmers were protesting about European milk quotas. But what was his involvement with the protest? And could it have anything to do with his murder?
Having nothing to go on but the distinctive shoes the man was wearing and a disease that had left his body strangely deformed, Brunetti and Inspector Vianello set out to try and discover the man's identity.
Their investigation eventually takes them to a slaughterhouse at Preganziol, on the mainland. It is there that Brunetti discovers the dead man's connection with the slaughterhouse and the world of blackmail and corruption that surrounds it. With a gripping case set before a harrowing exploration of the meat industry, Donna Leon's latest novel is a dark and compelling addition to the Brunetti series.

Donna Leon at her very best
Beastly Things is one of Donna Leon's most accomplished books: the plot is well conceived and fascinatingly presented, her regular characters come through with a limpid humanity, the cowardly or the calculating exhibit all that their actions imply, and the closing chapter is gracious and moving. The reading by Andrew Sachs is moving beyond expectation.
