"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)

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. ( )

One of the very best of this series..Wonderfull setting, a beautiful island in the Venetian laguna.,full of apricot trees and flooded with brillant sunshine...Brunetti is spending some weeks in this idealistic scenery so he can escape from the stress of his job, but can he?
Good story,interesting characters and as mentioned before, a stunning environment.. ( )

The last Leon I read was in 2010 and I really thought I'd call it a day. It was Through a Glass, Darkly and was irritatingly thin on plot, but big on fillers - politics/environment. A couple of weeks ago, however, I spotted this for a couple of francs at a church sale and couldn't resist. Had things changed?

Well, yes and no. I can't even say this one's thin on plot. It has virtually no plot whatsoever. But it seems much less didactic than Through... It's a melancholy meander through what I think of as the outback of Venice, the islands and their lagoons, in the oppressive heat of summer. The environmental issues are the more effectively presented by being done in a gentler way.

If you are looking for a whodunnit or a police procedural that has your heart beat pumping away, this isn't it. But in the most quiet of ways, I did find this hard to put down. If you want an authentic slice of Venice with an environmental subplot that is, alas, entirely believable. Indeed, I wonder if the controversy over the poisoning of workers and lagoons which resulted in a not guilty verdict for the Porto Marghera plant, was the inspiration. ( )

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.

After an exchange of courtesies, the session had gone on for another half-hour, and Brunetti was beginning to feel the strain of it.
