Description
From the author of The Waters of Eternal Youth, twenty-first Commissario Brunetti mystery and Donna Leon's biggest New York Times bestseller yet
It's no wonder that Donna Leon's latest mystery debuted on the New York Times bestseller list at number ten. The series's tantalizing crimes, Venetian setting, and much-loved commissario are a winning combination that continues to earn critical acclaim and a growing readership around the globe.

In Beastly Things, Leon lives up to her reputation as a writer unafraid to address the corruption underlying La Serenissima's outward beauty. When an unidentified murder victim winds up in a canal, Brunetti travels beyond his usual sphere to find the connection between the dead man and a local slaughterhouse.
