Publisher's Summary

Early one morning Commissario Guido Brunetti of the Venice Police confronts a grisly sight when the body of a young man is fished out of a fetid canal. All the clues point to a violent mugging, but for Brunetti the motive of robbery seems altogether too convenient. 

When something is discovered in the victim's apartment that suggests the existence of a high-level conspiracy, Brunetti becomes convinced that somebody is taking great pains to provide a ready-made solution to the crime. 

Rich with atmosphere and marvelous plotting, Death in a Strange Country is a superb novel in Donna Leon's chilling Venetian mystery series.

Ah. Vicenza!

Having served with the US Army at Caserma Ederle, Vicenza, Italy, for 3 years in the early '70's, I came to love that city, the Italians with whom we had friendships, and the eternal city of Venezia. I followed this story closely, and thought of acquiring a city map to follow Commisario Brunetti's movements. I felt as though I was a part of the story.
