: Donna Leon continues her bestselling suspense series with QUIETLY IN THEIR SLEEP, set like all her books in Venice, Italy. A local nun fears that the nursing home where she works is killing off patients, and so she turns to the commissario of police, Guido Brunetti, for his expert help. A New Yorker of Irish/Spanish descent, Donna Leon first went to Italy in 1965, returning regularly over the next decade or so while pursuing a career as an academic in the States and then later in Iran, China and finally Saudi Arabia. It was after a period in Saudi Arabia, which she found damaging physically and spiritually that Donna decided to move to Venice, where she has now lived for over twenty years. Her debut as a crime fiction writer began as a joke: talking in a dressing room in Venices opera-house La Fenice after a performance, Donna and a singer friend were vilifying a particular German conductor. From the thought why dont we kill him? and discussion of when, where and how, the idea for Death at La Fenice took shape, and was completed over the next four months.
