Dressed for Death: A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery #3 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Commissario Guido Brunetti must contend with ingenious corruption, bureaucratic intransigence, and the stifling heat of a Venetian summer. As he plans a trip to the mountains with his family, he learns that cases at the local court—hardly known as a model of efficiency—are being delayed to the benefit of one of the parties. A creative new trick for corrupting the system, perhaps, but what can Brunetti do about it? Just when it looks like he will be able to get away, a shocking, violent crime forces him to stay in Venice.

About the Author

Donna Leon has lived and taught English literature in Switzerland, Iran, China, Italy, and Saudi Arabia. She now lives in Venice and is the Sunday Times crime reviewer.
