The book of the week: Drawing Conclusions by Donna Leon

Donna Leon’s 20th Commissario Brunetti mystery "Drawing Conclusions” is just out in paperback.

As always, Leon's beloved Venice is the real star of the show, captivatingly depicted in all her various moods. When an elderly widow is found dead, a heart attack seems the most likely explanation, but Brunetti is not so sure.

It emerges that the woman was part of an organisation that cares for abused women and that her apartment was a safe-house – or maybe not so safe...

Settle down for page-turning mystery with all the enchantment of Venice as the backdrop.
