Publisher's Summary

In the sixth title featuring Donna Leon's ever-charming and sympathetic protagonist, Commissario Guido Brunetti comes to the aid of a young nursing sister who has had five patients unexpectedly die and decides to leave her convent. 

In the course of his inquiries, Brunetti encounters an unusual cast of characters but discovers nothing that seems criminal. Is the nun simply creating a smoke screen to justify abandoning her vocation? Or has she stumbled onto something very real and very sinister - something that places her own life in imminent danger? 

A beautiful, suspense-filled novel, Quietly in Their Sleep is Donna Leon at the top of her form.

The narrator makes this book!

I have listened to all of Donna Leon’s books available on audio. I enjoy her Brunetti character very much, and her plots. But what makes them come alive is David Colacci’s reading. His beautiful Italian accented English is never overdone, and different for each character.

Leon, Colacci, Chief Inspector Brunatti, Venice...

Leon sees humanity. This time it's the Church taking its medicine. Colacci and Bruatti administering. Five star conclusion.
