Reviews

  • "In her detective novels with Commissario Brunetti, Donna Leon can paralyse the reader with a joyful suspense, lost in the environs of Venice and hopelessly in love with her central character and his wife"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "The marvel of this book is that almost every detail on every page forms part of a succession of clues, planted with exquisite precision, to unravelling the mystery"

    Sunday Times
  • "Goes a long way to confirming Donna Leon's claim to have taken literary possession of Venice ... A Noble Radiance gives the reader a delightful foretaste of the summer holidays to come, but it also offers much more than that"
