Leon's twenty-first novel featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti, tackles carnivory and animal rights. After finding a body in the canal of a man who turns out to be an animal rights activist, animal rights and meat consumption quickly becoming preoccupying issues at the Venice Questura -- and in Brunetti's home, where conversation at family meals offer a window into the joys and conflicts of Italian life. Perhaps with the help of Signorina Elettra, Brunetti and Vianello can identify the man and understand why someone wanted him dead. As subtle and engrossing as ever, Leon's Beastly Things is immensely enjoyable, intriguing, and ultimately moving.
