Dressed for Death | [Donna Leon]

Dressed for Death

Commissario Guido Brunetti's hopes for a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Marghera--a body so badly beaten the face is completely unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the corpse but is met with a wall of silence. He then receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information.

Publisher's Summary

Commissario Guido Brunetti's hopes for a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Marghera--a body so badly beaten the face is completely unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the corpse but is met with a wall of silence. He then receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information. And before night is out, Brunetti is confronting yet another appalling, and apparently senseless, death.

    "Not Donna's best work"

    I have enjoyed Donna's writing in the printed form much more then the spoken format. I find the use of profanity to be distasteful and unnecessary for the most part and when I am reading I can just overlook the objectionable language and get the since of the work. In the audio format it's more difficult to overlook the shocking language.
