Death at La Fenice is the first novel by crime-writer Donna Leon. It is the first of the internationally best-selling Guido Brunetti series, set in Venice. Not only is it set in Venice, in many ways Venice is the lead character as it is in Leon's subsequent books.


Commissario (Detective) Guido Brunetti pursues what appears to be a murder investigation without leads.
