The Golden Egg by Donna Leon
- Price: £8.99 Add to Basket
- Commissario Brunetti returns, for his 22nd outing! This time Donna Leon's hero is trying to track down the history of a mentally-challenged man who has been found dead. What does his untimely demise have to do with the Mayor of Leon's beautifully-drawn Venice, and how can this man's sad, lonely existence tell Brunetti about a much bigger mystery? Leon has done it again, with the passionate characters, the evocative locations and the enigmatic puzzles we have come to expect from one of our best Crime Writers.
- Price: £16.99 Add to Basket
- A fascinating and deeply enjoyable foray into folklore, medieval bestiaries and Handel’s arias from the author of the enormously popular Commissario Brunetti detective novels. Twelve essays trace the evolution of mankind’s knowledge of the animals Handel references in his arias. Leon’s first work of non-fiction is a feast for the senses; beautifully written, sumptuously illustrated by Michael Sowa and accompanied by a CD of arias recorded by Il Complesso Barocco. An ideal gift.
