"Donna Leon's bestselling mystery novels have won a multitude of fans for their insider's portrayal of Venice. From family meals to vaporetti rides, the details and rhythms of everyday life are an integral part of this beloved series. But so are the never-ending influx of tourists and the suffocating corruption. Through it all, Leon's Commissario Guido Brunetti, a good man who loves his family and his city, has been an enduring figure, but in Earthly Remains, Brunetti's endurance is tested more than ever before. During an interrogation, Brunetti acts rashly, doing something he quickly comes to regret, and in the fallout, he realizes that he needs a break. Granted leave from the Questura, Brunetti's wife Paola ships him off to a villa owned by a wealthy relative on Sant'Erasmo, one of the largest islands in the laguna. There he intends to pass his days rowing, and his nights reading Pliny's Natural History. The recuperative stay goes according to plan until David Casati, the caretaker of the house, goes missing following a sudden storm. Now, Brunetti feels compelled to investigate, to set aside his leave of absence and understand what happened to the man who had become his friend"--… (més)

When an interview with a suspect threatens to get out of hand, Commissario Brunetti takes action to prevent a colleague from making a potentially career-ending mistake. Brunetti finds it difficult to extract himself from the chain of events he set in motion, and it results in a medical leave of absence from the Questura. He decides he wants to spend his days rowing on the laguna. One of Paola’s relatives owns a villa on one of the islands, and he accepts an offer to stay there. The caretaker, Davide Casati, turns out to be an old family friend, and he welcomes Guido’s companionship on the water. As the days pass, Davide opens up about the wildlife, and especially the bees he tends on various islands. He is alarmed when some of the bees die en masse, but his explanation is cryptic and unsatisfactory. Davide’s sudden death during a violent storm has Brunetti searching for answers.

After a couple of novels where justice actually prevails, Leon returns to her typical format where truth doesn’t lead to justice. Brunetti is driven by the pursuit of truth, but it seems to be getting harder for him to live with the failures of the justice system. ( )

Brunetti needs a break. When he acts impulsively on behalf of a colleague, he ends up at the hospital. The doctor prescribes two weeks off, renewable to a third. Paola knows the perfect place--in a family friend's home on an island in the laguna. Brunetti wants to row, and he discovers the caretaker once rowed with his father to win a championship. The caretaker takes him rowing as he sets out to take care of his bees. Much of the novel focuses on Brunetti's break, but when the caretaker doesn't return on a stormy night, concerns set it. Although ruled an accident, Brunetti automatically begins to investigate with the help of his colleagues. While it's light on mystery, it's strong on atmosphere. Ethical concerns, particularly relating to nature and the environment, are almost always a part of Leon's novels, and this one focuses more on that than the mystery. Fans of the series will enjoy it. Those seeking a stronger mystery element may be disappointed. I loved it, and David Colacci's narration always makes it better! ( )

It almost felt as though Leon was ready to retire Brunetti at the beginning of this book. Ending left ambivalent: suicide or murder? ( )

It is a rare gift to be able to deal with large questions without the signs of effort that often make for tedious reading. I love flowing through time with Commisario Brunetti as he tries to maintain his speed of life in the hustle and bustle of the modern world. Now I want a wonderfully slow Italian meal with a bottle of wine. ( )

E spenderem col fiume, e in seno accolti

We'll go down with the stream, and the sea
Will have us before the day dawns.
