Book Review - The Girl from Venice

I usually enjoy Martin Cruz Smith, especially his Arkady Renko series. This book was the exception.

The story takes place in Venice near the end of WW II. Cenzo, a fisherman who seems to be too well educated for his occupation, discovers a girl floating in the lagoon. It seems she's a Jew and is escaping from the SS. The plot was developing too slowly and neither of the characters were interesting to me so I gave up after reading about 60 pages of a 240 page book.

My advice is to give this one a pass.

It took me thirty seconds to wonder why would there be a Jew in the water down by Venice? Was she off one of the U-boats in the gulf?

Then I realized you meant Venice, Italy...

Too much time in SELA...
