Summary
The New York Times–bestselling series continues with the murder of an American soldier in Venice: "This is definitely an author to watch (Kirkus Reviews). 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 clues point to a violent mugging, but for Brunetti the motive of robbery seems altogether too convenient. When something discovered in the victim's apartment suggests the existence of a high-level conspiracy, Brunetti becomes convinced that somebody, somewhere, 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. Praise for Donna Leon and the Commissario Brunetti Mysteries "One of the best international crime writers is Donna Leon, and her Commissario Guido Brunetti tales set in Venice are at the apex of continental thrillers." —Rocky Mountain News "Leon's books shimmer in the grace of their setting and are warmed by the charm of her characters." —The New York Times Book Review "Brunetti . . . long ago joined the ranks of the classic fictional detectives." —Evening Standard "Commissario Brunetti, most charismatic current Euro-cop, uncovers deadly ants' nest of corruption. A highly accomplished, scary read." —The Guardian
