Looking forward to this...

This is my first experience with author Donna Leon, jumping into her 5th book in the series featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti. The story revolves around the art theft and lust for art aquisition as Brunetti is brought in to investigate after a friend is assulted, and the murders of those she worked with come to light.

With Venice as a background - and it's seasonal weather contributing to the story as well as the title - I enjoyed the story, characters, and backdrop.

I will be in search of other books in the series.

Received yesterday. And as luck would have it, I've gotten my hands on another Brunetti myster to send to you. So unless I hear from you to the contrary, I'll use the return address on your envelope to send you Leon's "Friends in High Places".

Not the best of Leon's series, but still a wonderful little trip to Venice.

Nabbed at the meetup last weekend. I love Inspector Brunetti, and hadn't read this one yet. Thanks!
