acqua alta and the abc murders

acqua alta by donna leon

there must be few detective stories like this one, with no twist, but it was ok as i recognised some of the places in venice, enjoyed the recent real acqua alta, and the novel ends quite (with deliberate ambiguity) beautifully

the abc murders by agatha christie / bbc

john malkovich as hercule poirot; pilloried for murdering a belgian accent but it sounded french enough for me what more do they want

altogether excellent – particularly the plot in fact – one of those rare detective novels where you’re fooled until the end but then kick yourself for not spotting the clues in plain sight – donna leon nota bene

How they are related

They are both detective novels. I’ve tried, but that’s as far as it goes.
