Last week, I finished the 23rd and most recent Brunetti mystery, By Its Cover. And, with that, I became a Donna Leon completist! All caught up until book 24 lands, most likely in April 2015. This episode involved the theft of rare books, which was so juicy. The balance of mystery, Brunetti's family, and the police station was perfect. As always, Leon's portrait of Venice takes me right back, and I wish I were there. Sigh. Looking for the next mystery series to dive into. I require a compelling protagonist and interesting setting. Both are a must. Some candidates include Ian Rankin (Glasgow), Louise Penny (Montreal), and Daniel Silva (various).
