Click for availability and more information Dressed for Death, by Donna Leon

Originally published in 1994 and recently re-released in paperback, Dressed for Death is Leon's third book in her murder mystery series featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti, a contemporary Venetian police detective. After the body of a brutally-battered man is found in scandalous circumstances, Brunetti sets out to first discover the body's identity and then his killer. This process takes him along the canals of Venice and into the city's secretive banking world. The story moves quickly with some twists and turns along the way. At the center is Brunetti and his Venice, which is wonderfully brought to life by Leon. This should make readers want to read more of Leon's series and follow further adventures of the highly enjoyable Guido Brunetti.
