9780099536574: A Sea Of Troubles

On a beautiful spring morning on the island of Pellestrina, south of the Lido on the Venetian lagoon, a small fishing boat moored at the docks suddenly explodes. When it becomes clear that the fire was deliberately set and the boat's owners brutally murdered, Commissario Brunetti tries to dig up information from Pellestrina's close-knit-and closemouthed-citizenry. But it is with mixed feelings that he accepts Signorina Elettra's offer to visit her relatives there and search for clues. Though loyal to his beloved wife Paola, he has to admit that less-than-platonic emotions underlie his concern for his boss's spirited secretary.

Review:

Praise for A Sea of Troubles:
“Donna Leon goes from strength to strength . . . This is her tenth novel but it’s as fresh and entertaining as the first.”?Observer (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
“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)
“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
