9780385738446: The Madman of Venice

Romance and mystery merge in this suspenseful tale inspired by Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. Venice in 1602 is a vibrant and charming city. Yet beneath this splendor lies a sinister underworld in which murderous pirates and conniving noblemen have woven a tangled network. Along with his daughter, Celia; his clerk, Ned; and his sister, Mistress Bess Quickly, Master Ashby, a prosperous merchant, sets forth from London to Venice to investigate the pirate attacks that have been plaguing English ships. But the group's mission turns out to be far more than they bargained for when Ashby is beseeched to find Sarah Tedeschi, a Jewish girl who has vanished from the Venetian Ghetto after being accused of witchcraft by the powerful Countess of Montemoro. Is Sarah's disapperance somehow connected to the pirate attacks? Nothing is what it seems as Ned and Celia uncover secrets that have been hidden for far too long.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

A voice behind him made him start. 'Well, Ned? What do you make of Venice?' Ned turned. It was Jacques d'Arcy. 'Beautiful, sir! Exciting . . . fantastic . . .' 'All those things and more. Enchanted. A mixture of beauty and menace,' said d'Arcy gravely. 'Never forget that, Ned, and you'll get on well here. I've always thought of Venice as a woman,' he went on. 'One of those half-women from legend—beautiful woman to the waist, serpent below. I think that should be her symbol—not the lion.' Ned shivered. 'That's a horrid thought, sir.' 'Oh, not really,' said the merchant, smiling. 'It's exciting. Intriguing. Just so long as you know to beware.'
