Description

‘Crime writing of the highest order’ GUARDIAN
‘Donna Leon has been giving unto us for all of the thirty years since Death at La Fenice introduced us to Brunetti’ Val McDermid

The gifted Venetian detective returns in his 31st case – this time, investigating the Janus-faced nature of yet another Italian institution. Brunetti will have to once again face the blurred line that runs between the criminal and the non-criminal, bending police rules, and his own character, to help an acquaintance in danger.

‘Both tremendously enjoyable and deeply humane’ JESSIE GREENGRASS, Costa-shortlisted author of The High House
‘Leon’s elegant, witty prose . . . is a joy’ AMANDA CRAIG

Publisher Review

Crime writing of the highest order * Guardian * The series that has shadowed Brunetti for three decades is an epic achievement - in its own way quite the equal of Anthony Powell's A Dance to the Music of Time * The Times * Few detective writers create so vivid, inclusive and convincing a narrative as Donna Leon, the expatriate American with the Venetian heart . . . One of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever * The Washington Post * Leon started out with offhand, elegant excellence, and has simply kept it up * Guardian * Donna Leon has been giving unto us for all of the thirty years since Death at La Fenice introduced us to Brunetti -- Val McDermid Leon's elegant, witty prose . . . is a joy. One of the best European novelists around -- Amanda Craig Give Unto Others is both tremendously enjoyable and deeply humane. As much about love as it is about crime, and rich with Venetian detail -- Jessie Greengrass, Costa-shortlisted author of The High House It may be Donna Leon's 80th birthday this year, but it is her readers who will be getting a present, in the form of a new Commissario Brunetti novel -- Barry Forshaw * Financial Times * Give Unto Others is no less mysteriously compulsive than its 30 predecessors . . . Thanks for giving such civilised pleasure for half a lifetime -- AN Wilson * The Tablet *
