Even Commissario of Police, Guido Brunetti, used to the labyrinthine corruptions of the city, is shocked at the number of enemies Wellauer has made on his way to the top - but just how many have motive enough for murder?

"Donna Leon has done for Venice what Colin Dexter did for Oxford and Sara Paretsky for Chicago"

Over the past two decades the American academic Donna Leon has done for Venice what Colin Dexter did for Oxford and Sara Paretsky for Chicago. Through a series of crime novels in which her home town plays as great a part as any of her human protagonists, she has made hundreds of thousands of fans into Venetian know-it-alls. Even readers who have never set foot in the Serenissima know where to get the best glass of Prosecco in town, which calle to walk down to visit which particular palazzo and what number vaporetto to catch to make it home for lunch
