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.«

The Sunday Times, London

»The pace of this novel is slow and stately but save it for the weekend when you don’t have to put it down even for a meal.«

Margaret Cannon / The Globe and Mail, Toronto

»... reading Leon is always an uplifting experience, like a perpetually refilled first glass of champagne.«

Mark Sanderson / The Times, London

»There is a central mystery, to be sure, but the characters and their evolving relationships are the driving force of the series as it explores Venice, its history, its culture and, of course, its crime.«

Bruce Tierney / BookPage, Nashville

»A joy to read and to follow her nimble work in this literary fine fabric.«

Frank Dietschreit / rbb Kultur, Berlin

»The cultivated Commissario, seeking the truth behind this strange imbroglio, reads the heart all the way back to Greek tragedy’s bitter truths.«

Wall Street Journal, New York

»Unarguably one of the most humane – and absorbing – of the series. [...] The dilemmas demand the best of Brunetti, which is what he delivers.«

Toronto Star, Toronto

»For those who know Venice, or want to, Brunetti is a well-versed escort to the nooks, crannies, moods, and idiosyncrasies of what residents call La Serenissima, the Serene One [. . .] Richly atmospheric, [Leon] introduces you to the Venice insiders know.«

USA Today, McLean, Virginia

»You can rely on Donna Leon.«

Thomas Steiner / Badische Zeitung, Freiburg

»What more could one ask for?«

Harald Loch / Aachener Zeitung, Aachen

»Brunetti fans will love this, because it reveals a lot about his personal life.«

Julia Gaß / Ruhr Nachrichten, Dortmund

»Donna Leon's Give Unto Others isn't about action, but far more about the psychological exploration of personalities we may encounter in day-to-day life.«

Simone Dattenberger / Münchner Merkur, Munich

»It is a pleasure to follow her light-handed work on this fine literary fabric.«

Frank Dietschreit / rbb Kultur, Berlin

»Leon’s thirty-first novel in the Brunetti series is about human weakness of all kinds: drugs, dementia and dietrologia or, to put it another way, the need to know. Isn’t that why we read mystery novels?«

The Times, London

»Still the next best thing to moving to Venice.«

Kirkus Reviews, New York

»There is no ambiguity about the unalloyed affection millions of readers feel toward Guido Brunetti, one of crime fiction’s most popular protagonists.«
