A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery. Published previously in the United Kingdom as The Anonymous Venetian
“The sophisticated yet still moral Brunetti, with his love of food and loving family, proves a worthy custodian of timeless values and verities.” The Wall Street Journal
Commissario Guido Brunetti’s hopes for a refreshing family holiday in the mountains are once again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Margheraa body so badly beaten the face is completely unrecognizable. Brunetti searches Venice
for someone who can identify the corpse but is met with a wall of silence. He then 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.
