Waters of Eternal Youth ★★★½ by Donna Leon

After attending a dinner party at his mother-in-law's home, Commissario Brunetti is enlisted to scrutinize a likely assault and near drowning of a teenage girl that happened 15 years ago. The girl, Manuela, has grown up but because of the time she was without oxygen, mentally she is only a child without a memory what happened. Her aging grandmother wants to know the truth.

Brunetti cannot re-open the case, which was ruled an accident but starts a private investigation delving into this long ago event.  The twists and turns of what happened and who had information, why the police didn't, and how eventually everything came to light was cleverly crafted keeping the reader searching along with Brunetti.

I have read every one of the books in this series, so far, I'm hoping that a new one will be coming in the future.  I would be terribly disappointed if this was the end of Commissario Brunetti and his adventures in Venice.
