Publisher Description

Early one morning Commissario Guido Brunetti of the Venice Police confronts a grisly sight when the body of a young man is fished out of a fetid canal. All the clues point to a violent mugging, but for Brunetti the motive of robbery seems altogether too convenient. When something is discovered in the victim's apartment that suggests the existence of a high-level conspiracy, Brunetti becomes convinced that somebody is taking great pains to provide a ready-made solution to the crime. Rich with atmosphere and marvelous plotting, Death in a Strange Country is a superb novel in Donna Leon's chilling Venetian mystery series.

    " All of the Donna Leon books are excellent; she presents a lovely balance of the mystery, the character development, bits of humor and home-life and more. The reader does an excellent job of making each character come to life. "

    " One of the later books in the Donna Leon series. Involves a US military base in Italy and a suspicious death. David Colacci is the consistent narrator that gives Leon’s books their Italian flair. Good plot, discusses Italian masculinism. "
