Publisher's Summary

Internationally acclaimed author Donna Leon has earned lavish accolades for her elegant Venetian mysteries featuring the irresistibly charming Commissario Brunetti. Now she presents her most beguiling and thrilling mystery yet. Against the atmospheric backdrop of the city of Venice, Brunetti finds himself fighting a lone battle to prove the innocence of a Romanian housekeeper accused of brutally murdering her miserly employer. With the odds stacked against her from the onset of the investigation when she fled from police, her guilt seems a fait accompli...until a neighbor comes forward to protest the innocence of the accused.
Stealthily working his way through the labyrinthine alleys of Venice, death nipping at his heels, Brunetti will have to defy his superiors to vindicate the housekeeper and stop her employer's real killer before he murders again.
Death in Venice: investigate more of Guido Brunetti's cases.

Another wonderful Leon.

This author is my favorite mystery writer. I feel like I know his detective his wife and kids. They don't get any better than this. The plot in this book is excellent, great characters, lots of questions to answer, all tied up by the end. Don't miss this one (or any other by Donna Leon.)

Vicarious Venetian Visit

The author & narrator eloquently transport their listeners to Venice - for only one credit! It's a mystery immersed in Venetian culture - definitely delightful - not at all stodgy. In addition to the story of intrigue, there is humor & family life. The characters are such that you feel that you know (& enjoy) them.The narrator is awesome, obviously fluent in Italian.The language is melodic and is meant to be heard, not read. The story unfolds at a mellow pace - but what else would expect in Venice?
