  • Crime writing of the highest order

  • The series that has shadowed Brunetti for three decades is an epic achievement - in its own way quite the equal of Anthony Powell's A Dance to the Music of Time.

    The Times
  • Few detective writers create so vivid, inclusive and convincing a narrative as Donna Leon, the expatriate American with the Venetian heart . . . One of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever.

    The Washington Post
  • Leon started out with offhand, elegant excellence, and has simply kept it up.

  • Donna Leon has been giving unto us for all of the thirty years since Death at La Fenice introduced us to Brunetti

    Val McDermid
  • Leon's elegant, witty prose . . . is a joy. One of the best European novelists around

    Amanda Craig
  • Give Unto Others is both tremendously enjoyable and deeply humane. As much about love as it is about crime, and rich with Venetian detail

    Jessie Greengrass, Costa-shortlisted author of The High House
