Drawing Conclusionsby Donna Leon
Synopses & Reviews
The seventeenth installment of the beloved New York Times bestselling series that boasts more than 600,000 books in print
The last four books in Andrea Camilleris Inspector Montalbano series have leapfrogged their way up the New York Times bestseller list, perfectly positioning Angelicas Smile to ascend to even greater heights.
A rash of burglaries has got Inspector Salvo Montalbano stumped. The criminals are so brazen that their leader, the anonymous Mr. Z, starts sending the Sicilian inspector menacing letters. Among those burgled is the young and beautiful Angelica Cosulich, who reminds the inspector of the love-interest in Ludovico Ariostos chivalric romance, Orlando Furioso. Besotted by Angelicas charms, Montalbano imagines himself back in the medieval world of jousts and battles. But when one of the burglars turns up dead, Montalbano must snap out of his fantasy and unmask his challenger.
Donna Leon's latest New York Times bestseller "is one of her best" (Booklist, starred review)
Twenty years ago Venetian Commissario Guido Brunetti and his creator, Donna Leon, first introduced readers to the delights-and dangers-of Venice. Now they have millions of devoted fans. In Drawing Conclusions, a young woman arrives home and senses that all is not right in the apartment below. When she investigates, she finds her neighbor lying lifeless on the floor. The autopsy shows that the widow's death was due to a heart attack, but Brunetti is convinced that things are not as straightforward as they seem. With her signature combination of humanity, nuanced detail, and psychological insight, Leon's twentieth Brunetti mystery reaffirms her place in the pantheon of crime fiction.
