Editorial Reviews

Review

“Evocative . . . Smith conjures the time and place with a generous dose of what the novelist Evan Connell called ‘luminous details.’ . . . The Girl from Venice’s vivid treatments of a timeless trade and certain little known aspects of World War II make it well worth your time.” —Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post

“You think you've read every permutation of a World War II novel possible—then along comes a Venetian fisherman and his unlikely first mate, a beautiful Jewish teenaged girl on the run from the last few Nazis occupying Italy. . . . Suspense, romance, spying, action—this novel has a little bit of everything, and it works. Cruz Smith is a master of quick scene changes . . . [who] has chosen, in The Girl from Venice, to put aside his usual spy stories for a straightforward wartime chase cum romance, a slice of La Serenissima life so perfectly researched that details melt into action like the local goby fish into risotto.” Bethanne Patrick, NPR

PRAISE FOR MARTIN CRUZ SMITH: 

“Martin Cruz Smith is a master of the international thriller.” The New York Times

“Smith is that uncommon phenomenon: a popular and well regarded crime novelist who is also a writer of real distinction. His prose is clear, precise, and unobtrusively elegant, and his sense of character is unerring.” The Washington Post
 

“A true storyteller. . . . Think Joseph Conrad on amphetamines.” Newsweek

“With the recent death of the reigning master of the suspense novel, Elmore Leonard, to whom do we turn in the hopes of a masterly glide through dire straits in the dark side of life, with pitch perfect dialogue, intriguing characters, and a plot with punchy turns and a satisfying twist? My candidate would be California writer Martin Cruz Smith.” —Alan Cheuse, The Dallas Morning News
