Great to again devour a Brunetti mystery. ( )

This is Commissario Brunetti number 30 and continues Ms Leon's meditation on the nature of love, this time with an added comic side step that considers what your spoken language tells others about you. To read Donna Leon is to understand that all Italians are linguistic gymnasts.

By now we know Commissario Brunetti and his family, his staff and colleagues and no time is wasted on introductions. Again the story unfolds on the waters of Venice. A boating accident exposes serious crime. Brunetti again is disgusted by human greed.

This is a short novel and while I liked it, as I like all of this series, I don't recommend it as your first taste, if somehow you have not sampled this series before. Start with the early, longer novels, not because they are better but because they are meatier and allow you to get to know Donna Leon and the Venice police on their own terms.

I received a review copy of TRANSIENT DESIRES by Donna Leon from Grove Atlantic through NetGalley.com. ( )

Commissario Brunetti and his colleague Commissario Griffoni investigate a late-night boating accident on the Venetian lagoon which injured two young American women visitors. The Americans visitors were later dropped off at a hospital by two men who then fled the scene. This sets the stage for another brilliant Brunetti investigation set in his native Venice. In this case, Brunetti's investigation eventually leads him to a gang of human traffickers, a newsworthy circumstance in contemporary Europe.

The plot is set against the strong sense of place and character of present-day Venice and its people. His detective work competes with Brunetti's unique lifestyle, but allows him to meet interesting people. In that way, it's a lighter police procedural but strong on characterization. In this story, regional suspicions are explored as Brunetti, a native Venetian, sees a different side of Griffoni, a native of Naples, when she interacts with a fellow Neapolitan. Similarly, there's the under the radar homosexual relationship between the two young men involved in the boating mishap. Brunetti is affected by the fact that they are close in age to his own son.

It's a satisfying well-constructed story made charming by the Venetian locale and plenty of credible and interesting characters. It can easily be read as a standalone despite there being many previous books in the series. ( )

Two young women were found on the dock outside a Venetian hospital in the middle of the night by someone stepping out to smoke a cigarette. They were unconscious and badly injured, one with a broken arm and the other with severe facial injuries.
With the use of security tapes, the Commissario Guido Brunetti and his team, especially his colleague Claudia Griffoni, were able to identify the two men who left them there and, later, the two women.
The fact that they fled the scene made the men targets of an investigation. One was a young lawyer; the second the nephew of a very wealthy warehouse and shipping company owner with a questionable reputation.
The incident occurred outside Guido’s turf so he teamed up with officials from other departments to investigate.
Their work turns up a horrific crime, one that is ongoing, and they work to resolve it, not knowing who they can trust for information.
TRANSIENT DESIRES, like the 29 previous Donna Leon Brunetti mysteries, is well-written and has an intricate, but plausible plot. There is interesting discussion about the reading and teaching of Paula Brunetti, Guido’s wife, as well as Venetian newspapers and politics. The various Italian accents, mentioned frequently in the books as a way to classify people, proves very handy.
The ending left me wanting another chapter to learn what happened to some of the characters.
I lowered my rating by one star because of too many unnecessarily short chapters. ( )
