Martin Cruz Smith’s latest novel is “The Girl from Venice.” The war may be waning, but Venice in 1945 is still occupied and the people of Italy fear the power of the Third Reich. One night a fisherman named Cenzo comes across a woman’s body floating in the lagoon. 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 her rather than turn her over to the Nazis, an act that leads them into the dangers of wartime Italy.
