9780099536574: A Sea Of Troubles

Dona Leon has amassed devoted fans around the world for her atmospheric and intelligent Commissario Brunetti series. A Sea of Troubles offers a rare glimpse into the scrupulous Commissario's personal life. When Brunetti investigates the murder of two local fishermen on the island of Pellestrina, the small community closes ranks, forcing him to accept Signorina Elettra's offer to visit her relatives there to search for clues. Though loyal to his beloved wife, Paola, he must admit that less-than-platonic emotions underlie his concern for his boss's beautiful secretary. Suspenseful, provocative, and deeply unsettling, A Sea of Troubles is an explosive and irresistible addition to Leon's marvelous series.

Review:

Praise for A Sea of Troubles:
“Brunetti . . . is the most humane sleuth since Georges Simenon’s Inspector Maigret . . . He is a decent man [who achieves] a quiet heroism.”Philadelphia Inquirer
“Donna Leon goes from strength to strength . . . This is her tenth novel but it’s as fresh and entertaining as the first.”Observer (UK)
“Brunetti is hard to beat―Leon’s tenth novel more than maintains the standard of its predecessors.”Times Literary Supplement (UK)
“[Brunetti] is a tenacious underdog and his journey through Italian venality and administrative woes is always rewarding.”Guardian (UK)
“The arrival of a new Donna Leon book fills me with pleasurable anticipation. She tells a good story, including the best of all current police detectives, Commissario Brunetti, and locates it in a superbly described Venice. The plot is beautifully constructed. The climax is exciting and disturbing . . . Brunetti is as irresistible as ever.”Scotsman
“Mesmerising.”Express on Sunday (UK)
“A splendid series . . . with a backdrop so vivid you can smell it.”Sunday Telegraph (UK)
“The best yet in this series.”Amore Travel Guides
