Five notable books on Venice

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five books on Venice:
Death at La Fenice
by Donna Leon

Leon's stylishly written, well-constructed, deliciously atmospheric mysteries--deftly set in modern Venice--offer sophisticated entertainment, with a detective, Commissario Guido Brunetti, who is the best of company (his wife Paola is a most engaging acquaintance as well). This is the first of the series' 20 books.
Read about the other books on the list.
