I'm surprised by how miserable a lot of the comments and reviews about this book are. I suspect a lot of that stems from the fact that it's not a Brunetti book - I think it's the only non-series book that Donna Leon has written but I may be wrong abo...more

My kindle chose to die and take with it the long list of downloaded samples of every book I've fancied reading but haven't got round to yet in the last few years. Of course it did that just when I was having a bad week and really needed the direction...more

I've read good things about this series so I thought I'd start at the beginning with the first book. Unfortunately the author thought much the same thing and started the book with a load of backstory that seemed to me as if it could have been left ou...more

I enjoyed this book but ultimately didn't think it was quite as good as the first in the series. As much as anything I liked the depiction of the Paris of 1928, it could have become a bit of a caricature city with the number of famous names mentioned...more
