Hardcover first edition - First printing. The third novel in this award-winning series featuring Guido Brunetti, commissario of the Venice police. The appeal of these books is partly based on the character of Brunetti, a devoted family man, and a dedicated police officer, who quietly abhors the powers-that-be, and also on the author's knowledge of the mileu - she was a teacher at the US air force base near Venice. The first in the series won Japan's prestigious Suntory prize as the best suspense novel of 1991. 231 pp. Fine in fine dust jacket (appears unread) Export edition with no price on the dj.

Synopsis: Commissario Brunetti's hopes of a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Marghera - a body so badly beaten the face is unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the dead man. But he is met with a wall of silence. Then he receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information. And before the night is out Brunetti is confronting yet another appalling and apparently senseless death ...
