  • "The fabulous Dionna Leon"

    The Spectator
  • "The thoughtful and charming [Brunetti] is on top form... His nicely balanced world...is culminatingly engrossing"

    Sunday Times
  • "[Leon's] passion for all things Venetian - churches, palaces, statutes and especially the food - comes over loud and clear...No one writes about the grey areas of life better"

    Guardian
  • "It would be simply perverse not to acknowledge the skill with which Leon has assembled these familiar elements... The reader comes to look forward to Paola's elegant Venetian lunches as much as Brunetti does...Comfort reading of the highest order"

    TLS
  • "Donna Leon has a wonderful feel for the hidden evils that lie below the façade of the magical city"
