Dona Leon has amased 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.

The writing and the story were solid but this book is all about the setting. Can't afford that trip to Venice? Read Donna Leon's books instead.

A double murder in a tiny fishing community on a small island in Venice's lagoon taxes Brunetti in a new way. The tight-knit village closes ranks against the police. Brunetti reluctantly accept's Signorina Elettra's offer to visit a relative there. Since she's done so annually, she believes she'll be able to learn more than he could. He learns more than he expects, but not what he expects. Several interesting twists in this one, including the change of setting. I always enjoy Leon's books, and her characters, especially Brunetti. This is an especially good entry in the series.

A suspenseful read set in the colourful, yet problematic islands of the Venetian lagoon.
