• The book is written with that depth of thought about crime and humanity that characterises the best of Leon’s work.

    Jane Jakeman, Independent
  • [A] fine, atmospheric novel…Twenty-one books on, [Leon] has lost none of her delightful skill and wit.

    Mark Sanderson, Evening Standard
  • Donna Leon’s elegant and compelling crime novels enjoy great success throughout the world. On the surface, this is another entry in a reliable long-running series. But it's also an oblique addressing of some complex issues with typical intelligence and perception.

    Barry Forshaw, The Good Book Guide
  • Beastly Things is a perfect accompaniment to a hot day and a cool glass of white wine. Superb.

  • [Leon’s] books paint such an appealing portrait of modern Venetian life that they’ve sent droves of holidaymakers to the city.
