About the Author
Praise For Through a Glass, Darkly…
No one knows the labyrinthine world of Venice or the way favoritism and corruption shape Italian life like Leons Brunetti . . . the thoughtful Venetian cop with a love of food, an outspoken wife, and a computer-hacker secretary who plays man Friday to his detective. (Time)
One of the best of the international crime writers is Donna Leon, and her Commissario Guido Brunetti tales set in Venice are at the apex of continental thrillers. (Rocky Mountain News)
