I reuested this novel because Donna Leon is one of my mum’s favorite writers She’s a crime novels addict and I remember her talking to me about this series a couple of times Her love for the author made me curios and I jumped at the occasion to read the latest release the 26th Installment in the Commissario Brunetti series I was a bit worried that I will have some problems understanding the personal life of the main characters since I did not read the previous novels and I was partially right Donna Leon the author of the series of novels that have as main character Guido Brunetti a detective at the Police Headuarters in Venice is an American of Irish and Spanish origins who’s lived in Venice for over 30 years From the way she writes we see that she is in love with the beauty and uniueness of Venice and the nearby islands but also sees its darker side environmental damage pollution crime corruption These latter issues are the subject of her newest novelFollowing an uncontrolled fit during an interrogation a case of corruption in the high society of Venice Brunetti realizes he needs a break and he gets nearly three weeks away from the office to recover His wife Paula sends him to the villa of a rich aunt on the secluded island Sant Erasmo to relax and read Here he spent the days in the companionship of David Casati the caretaker of the villa and an old friend of Brunetti' father The two became friends and David helpes Brunetti to restart rowing to rediscover the beauty of the lagoon and initiates him into the life of bees which unfortunately for some unknown reason perished from the island After a storm David Casati disappears and Brunetti interrupts his vacation and starts his own investigation to discover the truth about the disappearance and after the discovery of the corpse about the death of David CasatiAbout a third of the book covers the relationship between Brunetti and David Casati the way they spend their time together in nature Only later the conflict is triggered and the novel becomes a detective story I liked the book and the style in which it was written but the beginning was a bit boring I discussed with my mum and she told me that her other novels are action packed so I will probably read other Donna Leon books In order to have a better reading experience I should have started with the first books in the series to better understand Brunetti as a character his spiritual conflicts the other people from his life and circumstances that made him react like this at the beginning of the book I would not recommend to start with this novel if you never read anything by Donna Leon before it is suitable for readers that already know and love these charactersI received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
