Give Unto Others

Commissario Brunetti’s 31st Case
Published by Diogenes as Milde Gaben
Original Title: Give Unto Others

Elisabetta Foscarini, a childhood friend of Brunetti’s and still a beautiful woman, turns up at the Questura one day and asks Brunetti for a favour. Could he look into who is threatening her daughter’s family? However, so far there is little concrete evidence of any wrongdoing: who could possibly wish harm on a vet and an accountant who works for a charity? Brunetti is about to dismiss the whole thing as exaggerated maternal anxiety when there’s an attack, and the case takes a very dark turn. It has never been more difficult to bring the true criminal to account.

»Another moving meditation on the vagaries of human relationships posing as a mystery novel.«

Bill Ott / Booklist (starred review), Chicago

»Give Unto Others is both tremendously enjoyable and deeply humane. As much about love as it is about crime, and rich with Venetian detail.«

Jessie Greengrass / (Costa-shortlisted author of The High House)

»This book is classic Leon: Brunetti is less focused on any actual crime than on figuring out whether some other unknown crime has been committed, whether he himself is doing something wrong by using official resources on an unofficial investigation, whether the ends of finding information he needs justifies Signorina Elettra's shadowy means of procuring it [...] Still the next best thing to moving to Venice.«

Kirkus Reviews, New York

»It may be Donna Leon’s 80th birthday this year but it is her readers who will be getting a present, in the form of a new Commissario Brunetti novel, Give Unto Others.«

Financial Times, London

»Give Unto Others is no less mysteriously compulsive than its 30 predecessors… Thanks for giving such civilised pleasure for half a lifetime.«

The Tablet, London

»There has always been another reason to read Leon: the elegance and wit of her prose. Virtually every page contains a sentence that demands to be quoted.«
