Walks With the City's Best-loved DetectiveBook - 2009
Follow Commissario Guido Brunetti, star of Donna Leon's internationally best-selling mystery series, on over a dozen walks that highlight Venice's churches, markets, bars, cafes, and palazzos. With his acute eye for change in his native city, his fascination with the past, his ear for language and his passion for food and drink, and his familiarity with the dark realities of crime and corruption, Brunetti is the perfect companion for any walk across La Serenissima. The walks encompass all six regions of Venice as well as the lagoon. Important locations from the best-selling novels are highlighted and major themes and characters are explored, all accompanied by poignant excerpts from the novels.--From publisher description.
