Publisher's Summary

The murder of two clam fishermen off the island of Pellestrina, south of the Lido on the Venetian lagoon, draws Commissario Brunetti into the island's close-knit community, bound together by a code of loyalty and a suspicion of outsiders worthy of the Mafia.

When the Vice-Questore's secretary Signorina Elettra volunteers to visit the island, where she has relatives, Brunetti finds himself torn between his duty to solve the murders, concerns for Elettra's safety, and his not entirely straightforward feelings for her....

    "Incomplete"

    Stopped audio with 5 minutes remaining. Very frustrating ...
    I received a refund, then purchased a Kindle book to read the concluding pages.

    "Terrible reading"
    What didn’t you like about David Colacci’s performance?

    He makes many of the Italian characters sound as if they were trying to speak English, however, Donna Leon writes, in English admittedly, about Italians who are actually speaking their mother tongue. David Colacci appears to assume that non-Americans are too stupid to speak their own languages properly. This attitude made me so angry that I finished reading the book instead of listening to it.

    "Another Italian triumph"
    Would you listen to A Sea of Troubles again? Why?

    I really enjoy all of Donna Leon's books as they create a good view of Venice!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Sea of Troubles?

    I particularly enjoy the descriptions of meals which evoke images of wonderful Italian cuisine.


    What does David Colacci bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I have always enjoyed having stories read to me.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Brunetti solves the case again!
