Its first rays, rising above the sea wall and cutting across the narrow peninsula, caught Luciano as he paused at the top of the ladder, transforming this fisherman's son into a godlike presence that had arisen gleaming from the waters. There was a collective intake of breath, as in the presence of the numinous. Luciano shook his head, and water spattered to both sides. Then, looking at his father, he said, 'They're both in the cabin.

A Sea of Troubles book. The tenth is the Commissario Brunetti series by Donna Leon, A Sea of Troubles is, as its predecessors, a fun and easy read. This time, previously supporting characters come into greater prominence in solving the murders. It is set outside of Venice proper, in Pellestrina, and gives the reader the opportunity to learn a bit about small Italian town values and norms.

Donna Leon has lived in Venice for many years and previously lived in Switzerland, Iran, Saudi Arabia and China, where she worked as a teacher. The observable differences between the boats are insignificant: a clam scoop smaller or larger than that on the next boat; life buoys in need of paint or shining bright and smooth; decks so clean they gleam in the sunlight or stained with rust in the corners, where they touch the sides of the boat. The Pellestrina boats, during the day, ride in pleasant promiscuity one beside the next; their owners live in similar propinquity in the low houses that stretch from one side of the village to the other, from the laguna to the sea.

We learn more about Inspector Brunetti in this story, in which the setting alternates between the city and one of the outer islands in the Venetian Lagoon. But we especially learn more about Signorina Elettra, the mysterious and fascinating beauty who is a secretary in Brunetti's office but who really runs the place. There's more violence in this one than we usually see, but it's still a good read. The scenes of Brunetti and his wife, sitting on their terrace and enjoying a glass of wine while talking about many things, are a nice touch.

I have read three or four of Donna Leon's Comissario Brunetti cases, but I enjoyed this particular book because of the descriptions of the Venetian geography. When we think of Venezia, we never realize that so many islands conform it. Here we can appreciate the different atmosphere in Burano, Murano and the long peninsula composed by Pellestrina (where the murders in this novel take place) and the Lido, probably the only place in Venice where you may see motor vehicles of any kind. We can also appreciate through Ms. Leon's eyes, the different character of the people in these places.

This book is true to its title. At the book's beginning, Commissario Brunetti is drawn outside of Venice to investigate the murders of a son and father at sea. At the book's climatic ending, he battles the sea in both victory and defeat. For the first time in Donna Leon's Brunetti series, Brunetti must exert physical courage in addition to psychological insight and he fails to take notice of key developments. Because Brunetti is both stretched and made vulnerable in new ways, I rate this book as one of Leon's best.

It is the expected insightful novel from Donna Leon. Her clear eyed view of the microcosm that is Venice reflects her view of the world that matches my own. It is amazing to see how she exploits the different facets of this tight little community. And it was interesting to see how his "love" for Elletra was finally acknowledged and dealt with so well by Paola. For anybody who has not yet read any Donna Leon you probably won't understand what I'm saying so please start at the beginning with "Death at La Fernice" and try to read her books in sequence. Each book is a stand alone story but there is an over arching background of developing relationships with the characters who appear in all the books.

With each book I read in the series starring Commissario Brunetti, I become more and more enamored of the entire Brunetti coterie -- the family, his colleagues, and (of course) Venice itself. The way Leon creates a sense of space, of place, is remarkable. I came late to this author and cannot recommend her more highly. If you, too, are discovering Brunetti, I advise beginning at the beginning, with Death at La Fenice, in order to get the most pleasure out of the series. Don't misunderstand, each book can stand alone, but the most pleasure can be gained by reading them in order.

This progressively more suspenseful story truly does show Brunetti and dedicated crime associates in a sea of troubles. Theyl'll never be the same after this one as Brunetti's dedicated detective work takes him in an expanding field in and beyond Venice. Donna Leon takes us with them as we get to know the Venetian and human landscape.

I marvel at how Donna Left n finds new parts of Venice to bring into her novels. This time it's Pellestrina, a fishing island near the mainland. Human relationships form the basis of this volume - fishing communities and their loyalty to each other, loyalty and even love for people in Brunetti's circle.
Action-packed, introspective and insightful - Commissario Brunetti confronts murderers and potential mayhem as he investigates the death of a fisherman and his son. As he delves deeper in to the closed society of Pellestina, he is also forced to confront his feelings for Signorina Elettra and contend with the death of one of his respected colleagues. As usual, the writing is graceful, the story grabbing and the denouement, appropriate.
