An Italian police detective looks into the deaths of two fishermen in an isolated island community: "Leon's Venetian mysteries never disappoint." —The New York Times Book Review

On a beautiful spring morning on the island of Pellestrina, south of the Lido on the Venetian lagoon, a small boat moored at the docks suddenly explodes, killing two local clam fishermen. When it becomes clear that the fire was deliberately set, Brunetti decides to investigate. But when he tries to dig up information about the murder, the island's tight-knit, closemouthed community closes ranks—forcing Brunetti to accept Signorina Elettra's offer to visit her relatives there to search for clues.

On the island, Brunetti finds himself torn between his duty to solve the murders and his concerns for the Signorina's safety. And though he is loyal to his beloved wife, Brunetti's concern for his boss's spirited secretary may be driven by more than platonic feeling . . .

"The arrival of a new Donna Leon book fills me with pleasurable anticipation. She tells a good story, including the best of all current police detectives, Commissario Brunetti, and locates it in a superbly described Venice. The plot is beautifully constructed. The climax is exciting and disturbing . . . Brunetti is as irresistible as ever." —The Scotsman

"The sophisticated but still moral Brunetti, with his love of food and his loving family, proves a worthy custodian of timeless values and verities." —TheWall Street Journal
