Death and Judgment by Donna Leon: Book Review

For those of you who follow Donna Leon’s Venetian detective, this is an older one in the series, but you can be sure it’s full of the warmth and horror of all the others.  death and judgment, donna leon, commissario brunetti, venice, mystery

If you aren’t familiar with Guido Brunetti, his co-workers and his family, you’ll love getting to know this series of mysteries set in Venice. It’s always about the politics and it’s always about the corruption, but somehow, Brunetti always figures it out.

This is not a cozy mystery, the crimes are vicious and venal. Women are brought to Venice to ply their trade on the streets. Few of them knew what they were getting into. Guido is assigned to solve the murder of a prominent and ‘clean’ lawyer. By the time he’s done, even he’s shocked by what he’s learned.

I recommend this book, and the series, to anyone who likes a little cynicism with their justice.

RATING:  death and judgment, donna leon, commissario brunetti, venice, mystery
