|From The Publisher*||The twenty-first Commissario Brunetti mystery and Donna Leon's biggest New York Times bestseller yet |
It's no wonder that Donna Leon's latest mystery debuted on the New York Times bestseller list at number ten. The series's tantalizing crimes, Venetian setting, and much-loved commissario are a winning combination that continues to earn critical acclaim and a growing readership around the globe.
In Beastly Things, Leon lives up to her reputation as a writer unafraid to address the corruption underlying La Serenissima's outward beauty. When an unidentified murder victim winds up in a canal, Brunetti travels beyond his usual sphere to find the connection between the dead man and a local slaughterhouse.
