Award-winning crime writer Donna Leon talks about Trace Elements, the 29th novel in her bestselling Commissario Brunetti series.

A woman’s cryptic dying words in a Venetian hospice set Brunetti on the trail of a threat to the whole region. Brunetti discovers that her husband was collecting water samples for a company measuring the cleanliness of Venice’s water supplies before he was killed in a mysterious cycling accident.

Leon was named by The Times as one of the 50 greatest crime writers. Her books have been translated into 35 languages. Previous Brunetti novels include the CWA Macallan Silver Dagger for Fiction winner Friends in High Places and Fatal Remedies, Doctored Evidence, A Sea of Troubles and Beastly Things. Here she talks to chief fiction reviewer of The Sunday Times Peter Kemp.
