A New York Times BestsellerWhen the body of a man is found in a canal? damaged by the tides? with no wallet and one shoe? Commissario Guido Brunetti has little to work with. No local has filed a missing-person report; no hotel guests have disappeared. The autopsy shows a way forward: the man had a rare? disfiguring disease. A canvas of shoe stores brings Brunetti and Inspector Vianello to the mainland in Mestre? outside of their usual sphere.

I am always happy to read a new installment about commissario brunetti and his interesting family and co-workers. To me, Venice is a city of mythic proportions - and it is fascinating to see it through the eyes of a local.

Brunetti investigates veterinarian killed because he was going to report butchers using diseased animals.

Donna Leon writes about the not-for-tourists side of Venice, and draws us into the beauty and decay of a city that she obviously loves.
I like Commissario Guido Brunetti's investigative style, and his frequent suggestions to stop for a coffee when he and his colleagues need a breather.
The way Leon describes the world of the slaughterhouse, which adds a bloody touch/splash of horror to this story, shows off her detailed writing.
A wonderful read!

A man is found in a Venetian canal wearing one shoe in Donna Leon's latest mystery. Commissario Guido Brunetti investigates the unknown man's identity and uncovers dark secrets concerning meat consumption and animal inspection.

I've been disappointed in some of her later novels but this is better. I find that the series is more engaging than any one novel - and it's best to be read in order.
