Donna Leon returns to Daunt Books for another special event celebrating the latest in her bestselling Commissario Brunetti Mystery series.

Brunetti returns with a gripping and powerful case about the murkiness of power and a test of loyalties. When two teenage gangs are arrested after clashing violently in one of Venice’s campi, the son of a local hero is implicated. But when Commissario Guido Brunetti is asked by a wealthy foreigner to vet this man, Monforte, for a job, he discovers that Monforte might not be such a hero after all.

A Refiner’s Fire is Donna Leon at her very best: an elegant, sophisticated storyteller whose indelible characters become richer with each book, and who constantly interrogates the ambiguity between moral and legal justice.

Joining Donna is Mark Sanderson, a renowned literary critic, specialising in crime fiction.


Ticket price includes a glass of wine or a soft drink.
