Produktbeschreibung
During the interrogation of an entitled, arrogant man suspected of giving drugs to a young girl who then died, Commissario Guido Brunetti acts rashly, doing something he will quickly come to regret. In the aftermath, he begins to doubt his career choices and realises that he needs a break from the stifling problems of his work. Granted leave from the Questura, Brunetti is shipped off by his wife, Paola, to a villa owned by a wealthy relative on Sant'Erasmo, one of the largest islands in the Venetian laguna. There he intends to pass his days rowing, and his nights reading Pliny's Natural History. The recuperative stay goes according to plan and Brunetti is finally able to relax, until Davide Casati, the caretaker of the house, goes missing following a sudden storm. Nobody can find him - not his daughter, not his friends, and not the woman he'd been secretly visiting. Now, Brunetti feels compelled to investigate, to set aside his holiday and discover what happened to the man who had recently become his friend. In Earthly Remains, Donna Leon shows Venice through an insider's eyes. From family meals and vaporetti rides to the never-ending influx of tourists and suffocating political corruption, the details and rhythms of everyday Venetian life are at the core of this thrilling novel, and of the terrible crime at its heart.

Autorenporträt
Die Erfinderin des "Vendig-Krimis" wurde 1942 in New Jersey geboren. Schon immer schien sie das Fernweh anzutreiben. Als sie 1965 mit einer Freundin auf Italienreise war, beschloss sie, Amerika den Rücken zu kehren und in Perugia und Siena zu studieren. Donna Leon lebt seit dieser Zeit ständig im Ausland. Zunächst arbeitete sie als Reiseleiterin in Rom und als Werbetexterin in London. Später unterrichtete sie an amerikanischen Schulen in der Schweiz, im Iran, in China und in Saudi-Arabien. 1981 beendete sie ihr Nomadenleben und ließ sich in Venedig nieder. In Vicenza hat sie eine Professur für Englische und Amerikanische Literatur inne. Den Auftakt zur legendären Brunetti-Reihe machte "Venezianisches Finale". Seitdem hat Leon jedes Jahr einen Brunetti-Krimi vorgelegt und den Kommissar zu einer der bekanntesten Kriminalfiguren in der Literatur gemacht. Für die ARD wurden bereits mehrere Folgen u. a. mit Joachim Król erfolgreich verfilmt.

Das meint die buecher.de-Redaktion: Intelligent, engagiert und präzise sind die Krimis von Donna Leon, sie scheut sich nicht davor, auch aktuelle brisante Themen aufzugreifen.

Rezensionen
When she's writing about her beloved Venice, Donna Leon can do no wrong. And Earthly Remains, her new mystery featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti, is one of her best. It's also one of her saddest, dealing as it does with the seemingly unstoppable polluting of the great lagoon . . . Leon dares to try, once again earning the gratitude of her devoted readers.
