Description
From Martin Cruz Smith, "a master of the international thriller" (The New York Times), 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. 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.

With Martin Cruz Smith's trademark suspense, action, and breathtaking romance during World War II Italy, The Girl from Venice is "a gripping evocation of a beautiful nation and of two people, trapped in the lunacy of war and the bravery it can inspire" (The Seattle Times).

        August 29, 2016
        In this refreshing departure from Smith���s popular international thrillers, the 15th novel from this two-time Hammett Award���winner (Gorky Park) is a clever, well-crafted, and exciting blend of WWII romance, suspense, and intrigue. Set in Nazi-occupied Venice, Italy, in 1945, just weeks before Germany���s surrender to the Allies, Cenzo the fisherman finds a young woman floating in the lagoon. He rescues her and kills a German officer to protect her. Eighteen-year-old Giulia is the sole surviving daughter of a wealthy Jewish family, now sought by the Germans, Fascists, and partisans because she can identify the traitor who betrayed her family. Cenzo is a simple fisherman, a veteran of Mussolini���s war in Ethiopia, and wants nothing to do with this war. He feels obligated to help Giulia escape her pursuers but must rely on people he cannot trust, especially his older brother, Giorgio, a handsome Italian movie star and Fascist collaborator, as well as a Nazi colonel with a curious interest in Giulia���s family. As Cenzo and Giulia wind their way through a maze of deceit, danger, and betrayal, they fall in love amid the turmoil of German retreat, Fascist brutality, and partisan reprisal. Capture, escape, a hoard of stolen gold, a forger, and a Swiss movie producer add action and passion to the novel���s unexpected plot twists, and its most satisfying conclusion. Agent: Andrew Nurnberg, Andrew Nurnberg Associates.

      • content: The latest audiobook from Martin Cruz Smith is set during the collapse of the Axis forces in northern Italy at the end of WWII. It's a fascinating place and time, in which no one knows whom to trust and there are spies, collaborators, and competing factions everywhere. Brothers betray brothers as people switch sides, wartime scams come to an end, and the innocent and guilty all try to figure out which way to jump, and how to survive. The dramatis personae have all kinds of accents as well as agendas, and narrator Zach Appelman generally handles them well. His pacing and line readings are also effective, though his delivery can be sloppy. Fans of international thrillers and WWII adventures will be delighted anyway.
