As the 23rd instalment of Brunetti series, By Its Cover builds a characteristically vivid picture of Venice. This time the crime scene is a library. When valuable books disappear, Brunetti is in charge of finding the culprit. But the murder of a potential suspect accelerates with search and draws us into a sinister underworld. Leon’s subtle but compelling style weaves together the loose ends and vivifies the dark truths that lurk behind Venice’s antiquarian beauty. As winner of the Crime Writers’ Association Silver Dagger and one of The Times’ 50 Greatest Crime Writers, Donna Leon has a cult following. Her vast experience and impressive achievements in the crime fiction make her a fascinating speaker.
