Leon, Donna: Blood from a Stone (08.11.08)

Another excellent novel about Commissario Brunetti which again gives a convincing portrayl of Venice without hyperbole and presents a rounded picture of Brunetti and his family. The plost is possibly a little overblown though not until the denouement. Not only Brunetti's family environment but also his working one are skilfully depicted with economy. The whole series is well worth seeking out - and I must try one of the German TV adaptations soon
