This meticulously constructed, logical and credible plot is a classic example of the thriller. Edward Mercer, the ageing, self-questioning, unsuccessful English private eye searching Venice for the young Italian Gian Uccello. Adriana who is the wife of an Italian criminal; Rosa Melitus who has had a murky past and is now mistress of a "House of Accommodation". The colourful Venetian background is brilliantly drawn and the story unfolds with the speed, realism, excitement and suspense which one expects from such a magnificent story-teller.
