PICKED UP TODAY AT A CHARITY SHOP, THOUGHT I HADN'T READ THIS ONE ( LOVE DONNA LEON BOOKS ) BUT AS USUALLY HAPPENS - I'VE READ IT ....TYPICAL !!!

It began with an early morning phone call. A sudden act of vandalism had just been committed in the chill Venetian dawn. But Commissario Guido Brunetti soons find out that the perpetrator is no petty criminal.For the culprit waiting to be apprehended at the scene of the crime is none other than Paola Brunetti, his wife.

I love Donna Leon books, the characters are very real to me, the descriptions of living in Venice are fantastic .. feel like I've been there ( haven't ofcourse )
The crimes / mysteries are great.

Received in the post today - thanks! I'll add it to Mt Toobie and hope it doesn't take too long to get to! (I hope no-one else is waiting for it - the message that came with it suggests not...)

Thank you so much :o)

This was slightly different to most of the books that I usually read. The imagery used was amazing - it really brought the place to life, and made the story seem much more tangible than usual.

The fact that many of the characters had very similar names was slightly confusing, but that was probably made worse by me reading the book over a relatively long period of time in my lunchbreaks at work and random snippets at home. Having said that, I think I managed to keep track of who the main players were, even though the focus of the plot seemed to shift half-way through the book. It was like a cross between a red herring, and the author deciding halfway through that she didn't like where the story was going so she changed it!

Thank you for sharing this with me, Denise, and I'll try to share it with at least another bookcrosser.

Another excellent story from Donna Leon, with the extra twist of the involvement of Brunetti's wife. The ending was fairly predictable but it was excitingly written and I enjoyed it nevertheless. Thanks to nocton4 for releasing it.

Am going to Manchester tomorrow so plan to wild release it there.


RELEASE NOTES:

Actually released on 21 April to someone I met at a party and who showed an interest in bookcrossing.
