Dressed for Death
Dressed for Death: A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery | Donna Leon
4 posts | 9 read | 7 to read
Commissario Guido Brunettis hopes for a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Margheraa body so badly beaten the face is completely unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the corpse but is met with a wall of silence. He then receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information. And before the night is out, Brunetti is confronting yet another appalling, and apparently senseless, death.

I think this is the best of this series that I have read so far. The plot was very involved but kept my interest to the end. I really enjoy the characters, and I love how the city of Venice is as important as any character. This couldn‘t take place anywhere else. With food and drink so important in these books, I think a picture of our Valentine‘s Day Prosecco is appropriate. Brunetti drank some in the story 😄

BookishMe Stacking the book cos of your pic *burp* 😁🍷😁 3d
Lynnsoprano @BookishMe Sometimes I feel like I‘m gaining weight just reading about all the food and drink in this series 😂 3d
BookishMe Peter Mayle made me expand my wine budget! Lol... this is the series that made me realise epicurean delights matter more than plots ;p 3d

Yes, I have another book in progress on my Kindle, but I‘m in the mood for Commissario Brunetti 😄 This is the next one in the series for me. I have a long way to go!

Crazeedi I enjoyed every one, and yes you have lots of good reading ahead! ❤ Brunett!! 1w
writerlibrarian Such a good series. 💜💖 1w
DrJAdMerricksson Sounds like the Mary Russell series for me. There's a bunch I still have left to read yet. But they are my comfort stories now. My fave is Justice Hall. This series looks pretty cool though! I'll have to check it out. 4d
Lynnsoprano @DrJAdMerricksson And I‘ll have to check out the Mary Russell series 😄 4d
