Donna Leon writes about the not-for-tourists side of Venice, and draws us into the beauty and decay of a city that she obviously loves.
I like Commissario Guido Brunetti's investigative style, and his frequent suggestions to stop for a coffee when he and his colleagues need a breather.
The way Leon describes the world of the slaughterhouse, which adds a bloody touch/splash of horror to this story, shows off her detailed writing.
A wonderful read!
