Product description

Review

From a masterful writer, The Jewels of Paradise is a superb novel, a grip-ping tale of intrigue, music, history, and greed.

-- "Atlantic Monthly Press"

The Jewels of Paradise is as much a tale about a young woman wising up and learning to fight more effectively for her own happiness as it is a mystery.

-- "Washington Post"

Cassandra Campbell has a melodic voice and fine, fluid Italian, both important attributes for the narrator of Donna Leon's first stand-alone mystery. Campbell's pacing honors the novel's andante tempo...This is a literary departure for Donna Leon, which will please some, but not all, of her fans.

-- "AudioFile"

Leon spread[s] her wings, and she writes persuasively about music.

-- "Library Journal"

Fascinating...it boasts the same sensitivity to human behavior that distinguishes her Guido Brunetti series.

-- "Booklist"
