Publication: HarperCollins Publishers, 1993, New York
First edition. Signed by the author. Fine in dust jacket. In her second mystery, Commissario Guido Brunetti confronts a grisly sight when the body of a young American is fished out of a fetid Venetian canal. Though all the signs point to a violent mugging, something incriminating turns up in the victim's apartment that suggests the existence of a high level conspiracy-and Brunetti becomes convinced that somebody is taking great pains to provide a ready-made solution to the crime.
