Quietly in Their Sleep by Donna Leon

Cover of Quietly in Their Sleep by Donna Leon

Venetian policeman Guido Brunetti investigates a series of suspicious deaths at a nursing home run by an order of nuns. At first he can't find any evidence that the deaths were anything but natural, but when the former nun who first told him about her suspicions is severely injured in a hit and run accident, he knows that the patients must have been murdered. But how will he prove it?
