    Praise for Through A Glass, Darkly:
    Venetian life, and Brunetti's model marriage, are as entertaining as the working out of the whodunit. A joy from start to finish.

    "

    Evening Standard
  • "'One of Venice's greatest contemporary chroniclers... The smells, flavours, sights and sounds all come flooding to life. Even though the first crime doesn't happen until well over halfway through, but this doesn't dampen its page-turning appeal... Once again, Leon has her finger on the pulse.'"

    Henry Sutton, Daily Mirror
  • "Operatic brilliance... Donna Leon appears to have the knack of keeping her Venice-set Brunetti books as fresh as paint. Through A Glass, Darkly, like all her work, has the exuberance of a Puccini opera."

    Independent
  • "A wholly absorbing read."
