Crime writing of the highest order * Guardian * The series that has shadowed Brunetti for three decades is an epic achievement - in its own way quite the equal of Anthony Powell's A Dance to the Music of Time * The Times * Few detective writers create so vivid, inclusive and convincing a narrative as Donna Leon, the expatriate American with the Venetian heart . . . One of the most exquisite and subtle detective series ever * The Washington Post * Virtually every page contains a sentence that demands to be quoted ... reading Leon is always an uplifting experience -- Mark Sanderson * The Times * Leon started out with offhand, elegant excellence, and has simply kept it up * Guardian * Donna Leon has been giving unto us for all of the thirty years since Death at La Fenice introduced us to Brunetti -- Val McDermid Leon's elegant, witty prose . . . is a joy. One of the best European novelists around -- Amanda Craig Give Unto Others is both tremendously enjoyable and deeply humane. As much about love as it is about crime, and rich with Venetian detail -- Jessie Greengrass, Costa-shortlisted author of The High House It may be Donna Leon's 80th birthday this year, but it is her readers who will be getting a present, in the form of a new Commissario Brunetti novel -- Barry Forshaw * Financial Times * Give Unto Others is no less mysteriously compulsive than its 30 predecessors . . . Thanks for giving such civilised pleasure for half a lifetime -- AN Wilson * The Tablet * A gently paced, emotionally acute story of betrayal and revenge. * Mail on Sunday * Sumptuous and intensely satisfying, it reminds us what an extraordinary gift Leon has given us * Daily Mail Ireland *
