Death in a Strange Countryby Donna Leon
Synopses & Reviews
In Death in a Strange Country Commissario Guido Brunetti confronts a grisly sight when the body of a young American is fished out of a fetid Venetian canal. Though all the signs point to a violent mugging, something incriminating turns up in the victi‛s apartment that suggests the existence of a high level conspiracyÂ—and Brunetti becomes convinced that somebody is taking great pains to provide a ready-made solution to the crime. As dark and riveting as its predecessors, Death in a Strange Country will provide Leo‛s growing fan base with another chilling read.
Venice police commissario Guido Brunetti returns in an investigation involving the Mafia, the Russian government, and the US. military. When an American body is found floating in one of the city's picturesque canals, Brunetti probes into a case that lands him in a toxic waste cover-up.
