Quatrième de couverture :

'Leon's books are a joy, and the 19th Venice-based Commissario Brunetti novel is well up to her consistently high standard' Guardian

As Venice experiences a debilitating heatwave, Commissario Brunetti escapes the city to spend time with his family. For Ispettore Vianello, however, the weather is the last thing on his mind. It appears his Aunt has become obsessed with horoscopes and has been withdrawing large amounts of money from the family business. Not knowing what to do, he consults Brunetti and asks permission to trail her.

Meanwhile, Brunetti receives a visit from a friend who works at the Commune. It seems that discrepancies have been occurring at the Courthouse involving a judge and an usher with a flawless track record. Intrigued, Brunetti asks Signorina Elettra to find out what she can while he's away.

When news reaches Brunetti that the usher from the courthouse has been viciously murdered, he returns to investigate. But why would someone want a good man dead, and what might his death have to do with the Courthouse discrepancies? It soon becomes clear that things are not what they seem, and as suspicions arise Brunetti has to dig ever deeper to uncover the truth.

'To read a Donna Leon novel is to have an armchair holiday in her lovingly described Venice ... Leon never fails to impress with her carefully wrought plots and believable characters.' Carla McKay, Daily Mail

'Knowingness, or an illusion of knowingness, is essential to successful crime-writing ... Donna Leon has mastered this technique perfectly.' Jonathan Keates, TLS

Revue de presse :

"Leon's books are a joy, and the 19th Venice-based Commissario Brunetti novel is well up to her consistently high standard" ( Guardian)

"Leon excels in the claustrophobia of families, the Italian class system and the sinister aspects of Venice that the tourists don't see" (Marcel Berlins The Times)

"To read a Donna Leon novel is to have an armchair holiday in her lovingly described Venice, in the company of an old friend - the amiable Commissario Brunetti . . . Leon never fails to impress with her carefully wrought plots and believable characters" ( Daily Mail)

"Knowingness, or an illusion of knowingness, is essential to successful crime-writing . . . Donna Leon has mastered this technique perfectly" (Jonathan Keates TLS)

"Donna Leon has established a special hold on the reader's imagination, so it is almost easier to imagine the Commissario returning to lunch with his feisty wife, just round the corner, than almost any other fiction character in the immortal (we hope) city. . . A Question of Belief is particularly enjoyable...Donna Leon's great skill is to invest the characters in her crime novels with a kind of humanity, even the wrongdoers. . . [a] marvellous evocation of the magic city, and its inhabitants of all types" (Antonia Fraser The Lady)

Description du livre Atlantic Monthly Press, 2010. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Donna Leon's best-selling series featuring the principled, warmhearted Venetian Commissario Guido Brunetti has won her countless fans, critical acclaim, and international renown as one of the world's best crime writers. In A Question of Belief , Brunetti must contend with ingenious corruption, bureaucratic intransigence, and the stifling heat of a Venetian summer. With his hometown beset by hordes of tourists and baking under a glaring sun, Brunetti's greatest wish is to go to the mountains with his family, where he can sleep under a down comforter and catch up on his reading. But before he can go on vacation, a folder with court records has landed on his desk, brought by an old friend. It appears that cases at the local court--hardly known as a model of efficiency--are being delayed to the benefit of one of the parties. A creative new trick for corrupting the system, perhaps, but what can Brunetti do about it? And just when it looks like Brunetti will be able to get away, a shocking, violent crime forces him to stay in Venice. This is a stellar addition to Leon's celebrated series: atmospheric, packed with excellent characters, and building to an explosive, indelible ending. N° de réf. du libraire ABE_book_new_0802119425
