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.

Plot[edit]

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