Commissario Brunetti's 23rd Case
Published by Diogenes as Tod zwischen den Zeilen
Original Title: By its Cover. Commissario Brunetti's 23rd Case

When several valuable antiquarian books go missing from a prestigious library in the heart of Venice, Commissario Brunetti is immediately called to the scene. The staff suspect an American researcher has stolen them, but for Brunetti something doesn’t quite add up. Taking on the case, the Commissario begins to seek information about some of the library’s regulars, such as the ex-priest Franchini, a passionate reader of ancient Christian literature, and Contessa Morosini- Albani, the library’s chief donor. When a death occurs, the case takes a more sinister turn and soon Brunetti finds himself submerged in the dark secrets of the black market of antiquarian books.

»Donna Leon’s writing trembles with true feeling.«
Star Tribune, Minneapolis
»Think of Leon’s latest ›Brunetti‹ novel as a love letter to her fans. [...] This will likely be one of his most-loved adventures.«
Bill Ott / Booklist (starred review), Chicago
»One of her best in a long line of super efforts. [...] Guido Brunetti’s wry internal observations and musings about everything from his superiors to his family are reason enough to come to the feast.«
Joe Hartlaub / www.bookreporter.com
»Donna Leon is one of the more unusual and satisfying writers of crime fiction in the current pantheon [...] Brunetti is exceptional among detectives. [...] Not since Simenon’s Maigret have we seen a detective so devoted to the reality and complexity of everyday life.«
