Hardcover first edition - First printing. The author's hard to find second novel - and the second featuring Guido Brunetti, commissario of the Venice police. This begins with the discovery of a body of a young man in the canal - that of an American soldier. The appeal of this story 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. 268 pp. Fine in a fine dust jacket (as new.)
