Donna Leon’s multitude of fans around the world has grown with each new Commissario Brunetti novel, and now mystery lovers in the United States can enjoy another compelling episode. In Fatal Remedies, Brunetti’s career is under threat when his professional and personal lives unexpectedly intersect. In the chill of the Venetian dawn, a sudden act of vandalism shatters the quiet of the deserted city, and Brunetti is shocked to find that the culprit waiting to be apprehended at the scene is a member of his own family. Meanwhile, he is also under pressure from his superiors to solve a daring robbery with connections to a suspicious accidental death. Could the two crimes be connected? And will Brunetti be able to prove his family’s innocence before it’s too late?


“One of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever”
-The Washington Post

“No one knows the labyrinthine world of Venice . . . like Leon’s Brunetti.”

“[Brunetti’s] humane police work is disarming, and his ambles through the city are a delight.”
The New York Times Book Review

“The sophisticated but still moral Brunetti, with his love of food and his loving family, proves a worthy custodian of timeless values and verities.”
-The Wall Street Journal
