Death at La Fenice - Donna Leon


I went to Venice once. I didn't like it. Too much like a shabby overpriced theme park. But apparently some real people actually live there and sometimes they kill each other, or in this case... anyway, while I don't succumb to the romance of the place, Leon certainly creates a sense of atmosphere, and, more interestingly, shows readers parts that tourists never see. This was the first in the long series of Brunetti novels so a little unpolished at this stage, but it's a sufficiently diverting and undemanding thriller.
