Drawing Conclusions by Donna Leon

| /

In Drawing Conclusions, the twentieth novel in Donna Leon’s brilliant Brunetti series, young Signora Giusti arrives home after a holiday and senses that all is not right in the apartment below. When she investigates, she finds her neighbor, an elderly widow, lying lifeless on the floor. The autopsy shows that Signora Altavilla’s death was due to a heart attack—a verdict which her son seems to hear with a great deal of relief. Brunetti, however, is convinced that things are not as straightforward as they appear.
