"The highly anticipated new standalone novel from Martin Cruz Smith, whom The Washington Post has declared "that uncommon phenomenon: a popular and well-regarded crime novelist who is also a writer of real distinction," The Girl from Venice is a suspenseful World War II love story set against the beauty, mystery, and danger of occupied Venice. Venice, 1945. The war may be waning, but the city known as La Serenissima is still occupied and the people of Italy fear the power of the Third Reich. One night, under a canopy of stars, a fisherman named Cenzo comes across a young woman's body floating in the lagoon and soon discovers that she is still alive and in trouble. Born to a wealthy Jewish family, Giulia is on the run from the Wehrmacht SS. Cenzo chooses to protect Giulia rather than hand her over to the Nazis. This act of kindness leads them into the world of Partisans, random executions, the arts of forgery and high explosives, Mussolini's broken promises, the black market and gold, and, everywhere, the enigmatic maze of the Venice Lagoon. The Girl from Venice is a thriller, a mystery, and a retelling of Italian history that will take your breath away. Most of all it is a love story"--… (mere)

Venice is occupied nearing the end of WWII. A fisherman named Cenzo finds a girl in the water when he is fishing. She is jewish and escaping the Germans. Cenzo is a common fisherman who has a famous brother. who we can never quite figure out if he is one of the good guys or not. Most of the novel continues on this vain as we meet collaborators, partisans etc. the characters are intriguing and the dialogue very smart but this novel was only okay to me. The depth of plot just wasn't there. ( )

By a coincidence I had just finished a Donna Leone book that also dealt with the island of Pelistrina. The era is completely different and the image presented of the fishermen much different but it does expand my grasp of Venice's geography. This is both a lover story and a story of intrigue at the end of World war two in Italy. I found it a clever story. ( )

Smith writes with his usual skill, and his characters are as witty, world-weary, and romantic as ever.

Thanks to Simon & Schuster and Goodreads for the free copy. ( )

Writing not so great. WWII. Italy. What’s the point here? Why’d I bother to finish this? ( )

When a fisherman from a small town outside Venice finds what he believes to be a dead girl in the water, he discovers himself in the middle of a plot to end World War II, a search for an escaped Jew, and more counterplots than expected. It is the end of the war in Italy, and all sides are searching for a survival strategy. Why is one girl so central? ( )
