This is one of the earlier tales in this series. I was disappointed. Not as much of the family, not as much delicious food, and too much violence. It was a good page turner, but made me anxious unlike most Brunetti. I have always loved the family dynamic and the wonderful culinary description and this was lacking. ( )

Acqua alta is the term used in Veneto for the exceptional tide peaks that occur periodically in the northern Adriatic Sea. Exceptional is right! Add relentless rain to the phenomenon in Venice and you have a situation where the water outside can reach knee level and calf level in the entryways.
Amid this, there is the severe beating of a renowned expert of Chinese pottery artifacts (known from a previous case to Commissario Brunetti) in her own home, and soon thereafter the murder of the director of a prominent local museum. Another convoluted tale of murder in a very unique city and the solid police work (and a little sneaky stuff, too) by the Commissario.
Narrator David Colacci has the trick of using American standard Italian and Sicilian accents to differentiate the multiple male characters down to a science. Bravissimo! ( )

Here is something I really enjoyed about Acqua Alta. The characters from Leon's first Guido Brunetti mystery come back. First introduced in Death at La Fenice, talented opera singer Flavia Petrelli and her lover, archaeologist Brett Lynch, are back five books later, in Acqua Alta. Leon is strategic in how she reintroduces these characters and ties them back to Death at La Fenice. It's as if she reassures the reader Acqua Alta will stand on its own. There is no need to go back and read previous mysteries.
Back to the plot. After Brett is brutally attacked in her apartment, Inspector Brunetti takes on her case. As an American in Venice, Brett seems an unlikely victim of a robbery and yet the attack on her was brutal. It can't be her lifestyle; she and Flavia have been flaunting that for two years now. It can't be her nationality; hundreds of foreigners run away to Venice on a daily basis. Brunetti focuses on her career as an archaeologist and soon a picture of corruption and scandal in the art world emerges.
As an aside, the title of the book comes from the phenomenon called acqua alta, the occasionally flooding of Venice. This happens when there is winter torrential rain, unusually high tides (during a full moon) and wind pushing water up from the Adriadic Sea into the Venetian Lagoon. It is important to understand this weather event because the acqua alta is truly another character in the book and crucial to the plot. ( )

Ms Leone had achieved a new and richer level of character development and story. Even the character of Venice is presented in a richer and subtler way.
A brief incident when Brunetti fears his son is injecting himself with illegal drugs amplifies his humanity.
The reader ends up feeling a deeper familiarity with everyone involved in the book. ( )

Acqua Alta (1996) (Comm. Brunetti #5) by Donna Leon. Aqua Alta is the tern used in Venice to describe the high peaks of flooding that occur within the city about every third winter. That is the setting for the fifth in this popular series. Here Brunetti is faced with antiquities theft, particularly Chinese artifacts. Brett Lynch, and her lover, who we met in the first Brunetti book, are back. She is attacked in her home and this initiates the investigation into art theft at the very top. There is a murder that comes in very quickly that ensures to the Commissario that he is on the right track.
A lot of the story of this international crime is told from Brett’s perspective which I found a bit annoying. But the setting, as always, is magnificent. Venice is and always will be a major character in these books. If you are planning to go, well there are many tour guidebooks available. But if you have gone and now want to refresh you memories, any of these stories will do the trick.
As usual, there is corruption in high places. Museum curators are not above getting their fingers dirty for a few million lira, and there is always a wealthy collector willing to pay what it takes to get what they want.
A little talky in sports, but Brunetti’s family helps make everything alright.
This book is also known as Death In High Water. ( )

Dalla sua pace
La mia depende,
Quel che a lei piace
Vita mi rende,
Quel che le increse
Morte mi da.

S'ella sospira
Sospiro anch'io;
E mia quell'ira
Quell pianto è mio;
E non ho bene,
S'ella non l'ha.

Von ihrem Frieden
hängt der meine ab,
was ihr gefällt,
schenkt neues Leben mir,
was Schmerz ihr bringt,
gibt mir den Tod.

Seufzt sie,
seufze auch ich;
ihr Zorn ist der meine,
ihre Tränen auch;
ich bin nicht glücklich,
wenn sie es nicht ist.
