Suffer the Little Children Summary


Suffer the Little Children: (Brunetti 16) by Donna Leon

When Commissario Brunetti is summoned to the hospital bedside of a senior paediatrician whose skull has been brutally fractured, he is confronted with more questions than answers. Three men have burst into the doctor's apartment in the middle of the night, attacked him and took his 18-month-old son - but why? As he investigates, Brunetti finds infertility, desperation, and babies for sale. Meanwhile, Inspector Vianello uncovers a scam between pharmacists and doctors in the city. And certain information about one's neighbours can lead to all kinds of corruption and all sorts of pain... Donna Leon's new novel is as subtle and gripping as ever, set in a beautifully realised Venice, seething with small-town malice.

Suffer the Little Children Reviews


"Praise for Through A Glass Darkly: 'Operatic brilliance. Donna Leon appears to have the knack of keeping her Venice-set Brunetti books as fresh as paint. Through A Glass, Darkly, like all her work, has the exuberance of a Puccini opera.'" * Independent *
"As usual, Leon's witty portrayal of modern Venetian life, and Brunetti's model marriage, are as entertaining as the working out of the whodunit. A joy from start to finish." * Evening Standard *
"'Donna Leon... She's more than staked her claim to being one of Venice's greatest contemporary chroniclers. The smells, flavours, sights and sounds all come flooding to life.' ," -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror - Buy It *
"A wholly absorbing read." * Sunday Telegraph *
