series' author Donna Leon
Salzburg, Austria - July 23 -
During a recent Tracks of the Tiger audio book promotional tour Tony Garcia
was on hand to congratulate Donna
Leon on the publication of the German edition of Blood from a Stone.
Donna Leon is a fellow American author living in Europe whose series of crime novels are set in
Venice and feature the fictional hero 'Commissario Guido Brunetti.'
Donna Leon's 16 crime novels beginning with Death at La Fenice (1992)
to Suffer the Little Children (2007) are situated in or near Venice.
They are written in English and translated into a number of foreign

Salzburg Austria is renown for
its Altstadt (old town) baroque architecture, churches and Alpine setting.
It was the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the setting for the
film The Sound of Music. Situated on the banks of the Salzach river
at the northern edge of the Alps, the closest alpine peak, the Untersberg
(1972 meters) is just a few kilometers from downtown.
