9780434021437: Drawing Conclusions: (Brunetti 20)
Revue de presse :

" [Leon's] portrait of Venice and modern Italy is, as always, captivating...The lively conversations between...characters, displaying Leon's sly humour, are a delight." ( Evening Standard)

" With characteristic skill, Leon draws together multiple threads and a well-rounded cast ... With the steady, unsentimental style that has become her signature, Donna Leon keeps us hesitating until the last corner is turned." ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Leon's clear-eyed descriptions of Venice still make you long to return to the calles and campos of the floating city." ( Sunday Telegraph)

" More elegant, understated crime fighting from the mistress of La Serinissima...A welcome return to the comfortable characters and locations that her fans have come to love." ( Independent)

"[Leon] is a master at weaselling her way into the venal byways of human selfishness and laying them bare. ... There's a quietness to the crimes here that is more powerful than outlandish violence, and which points to the philosophical bedrock from which Leon so effectively works." ( Scottish Sunday Herald)

Quatrième de couverture :

When a young woman returns from holiday to find her elderly neighbour dead, she immediately alerts the police. Commissario Brunetti is called to the scene but, though there are signs of a struggle, it seems the woman has simply suffered a fatal heart attack. Vice-Questore Patta is eager to dismiss the case as a death from natural causes, but Brunetti believes there is more to it than that. His suspicions are further aroused when the medical examiner finds faint bruising around the victim's neck and shoulders, indicating that someone might have grabbed and shaken her. Could this have caused her heart attack? Was someone threatening her?

Conversations with the woman's son, her upstairs neighbour, and the nun in charge of the old-age home where she volunteered, do little to satisfy Brunetti's nagging curiosity. With the help of Inspector Vianello and the ever-resourceful Signorina Elettra, Brunetti is determined to get to the truth and find some measure of justice.

Insightful and emotionally powerful, Drawing Conclusions reaffirms Donna Leon's status as one of the masters of literary crime fiction.

Description du livre William Heinemann. 1 Cloth(s), 2011. hard. État : New. A young woman returns from holiday to find her elderly neighbor dead on the floor, in this 20th case for Commissario Guido Brunetti of the Venice police. A heart attack seems the likely cause, but Brunetti takes a closer look and finds that she was part of an organization that cares for abused women, and had made her apartment a safe-house. Convinced that this is the lead he has been looking for, Brunetti is instead drawn into a decades-old story of lies and deceit that has blighted love and ruined lives, and claimed this innocent woman merely as its newest victim. Donna Leon crafts atmospheric yet realistic mysteries that reveal the contemporary Venice behind the mask of history and tourism. Pointed social commentary, depictions of everyday life, and political machinations (sometimes palpable, but most often lurking beneath the surface) mix with the mysteries at hand and Brunetti's love of his city, while Leon gives us a depth of character and plot all to rare in the mystery genre."Leon draws together multiple threads and a well-rounded cast. With the steady, unsentimental style that has become her signature, Donna Leon keeps us hesitating until the last corner is turned."—Times Literary Supplement 260. N° de réf. du libraire 64334
