5.0 out of 5 stars Like meeting old friends again, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like so many of Donna Leon's fans, each time a new Brunetti novel comes out, I feel it's like meeting up with old and much loved friends (though I wish we could stay with the family in their appartment near Rialto). I've been re-reading all the detective series recently and realise how much sparer but no less gripping Ms Leon's books have become. Her prose style is now pared down, and the story lines are perhaps not as action-packed as they once were, but they are no less entertaining for that. The Brunetti family is older, like us all, the humour is still there as well as the drama and tragedy of the plot and the city. As one of the regular visitors to Venice who has probably annoyed Ms Leon (and the Commissario) by making it harder for them to move about their glorious home city, I rejoice that the author can make us still feel we can experience having at least a small stake in Venetian life through humour, good food and wine, excellent company, and an all too real detective plot in the world's most beautiful city. Can't wait for the next one .......!

Anyone who loves this magical city will, I'm sure enjoy this book. It tells the story of the family's time spent living there, incluidng all the rpactical joys and niggles of everyday life - even down to the difficulty of hanging out the washing over the canal at your doorstep a couple of floors below. Any fan of Venice should enjou this.

Never bought an Apple product before as I was always annoyed by the way they seemed to manipulate the market but I surrender. This is the handy life changer it was designed to be. Only had it a couple of days and think it's beautifully designed, easy to use, and dangerously unputdownable!

Riches' series never falters and the fifth book keeps a high standard throughout. If you've not dipped into these books yet you're missing an exhilarating treat!
