  • Leon's best so far ... I don't think I could really understand a crime fan who didn't love Donna Leon

    Scotland on Sunday
  • Leon tells the story as if she loves Venice as much as her detective does, warts and all. The plot and subplots unfold elegantly; beauty and the beast march hand in hand, and the result is rich entertainment.

    Sunday Times
  • All Donna Leon's novels are excellent in their evocation of place, while in Brunetti she has created a character who becomes more real in each book ... However, Friends in High Places is by far the best, and marks a quantum leap forward

    Evening Standard
  • Leon is a skilful plotter ... Brunetti is a nicely shaded creation, a moral man who is also all too human. Friends in High Places is a splendid read, clever and provoking

    The Observer
  • Friends in High Places [is an] elegant police procedural set in beautifully imagined Venice
