Product description

Review

There is no one better than Donna Leon at showing the ripple effects of a single traumatic event . . . Throughout this astonishingly consistent series Leon has recast the city in her own venerable image: full of surprises and hidden beauty. ― Evening Standard

All the things that are wrong with the city appear in these books: corruption, decay and overcrowding are part of the scenery and Leon pulls no punches describing them. But she still loves Venice and Brunetti and so do her readers. ―
Literary Review

Effortlessly entertaining. ―
Crime Time

A richly textured exploration of issues from corruption to art preservation to African migrants; add in the glorious eccentricities of Brunetti’s police colleagues and the touching snapshots of family life, and you have a sparkling summer read. ―
The Tablet, Summer Reading --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Book Description

"In The Waters of Eternal Youth, the twenty-fifth instalment in the bestselling Brunetti series, our Commissario finds himself drawn into a case that may not be a crime at all." --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Would you miss breathing"?
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 June 2016
I have read all of Donna Leon's novels and I have to remind myself that Brunetti, like Santa Claus is a work of fiction - maybe...
I first came across these novels whilst recovering from a severe injury and started with Fatal Remedies. Immediately I then backed up to Death a La Fenice and started from scratch.
Brunetti is not a hero, he is a normal guy doing his best who (along with his family & friends) grows in each novel. I love the world weary cynicism that flows through the books, interlaced with just enough humour to deflect.
Since 2008 I have hidden each novel away until my husband and I visit Venice where I devour the latest episode in Brunetti's life.
We stay away from St Marks hidden away in Dorsoduro, shopping for fish at the Rialto and stopping for a bite in Do Mori.
If you love Venice with all of its idiosyncrasies and world related issues these novels will transport you back there. If you have yet to visit book you flight and stay in the 'real' Venice.
This novel for me was the best ever. In part because of the equestrian connection. If you ride you will get it - not only the ending but the answer "Would you miss breathing" by Claudia in response to a question from Brunetti. The insight shown in this one line stopped me in my tracks.
I write this whilst overlooking Guidecca yet again reminding myself this is fiction.
I read every moment I can and work permitting ( plus I feel I should converse occasionally with my husband ) probably read three books a week - Donna Leon remains my favourite author for contemporary fiction.
