On an August night on a small island near Venice, a fire explodes in a glassmaking shop. When help arrives, two people are dead, a rich Englishman is implicated, and investigators from Rome are assigned a case no one wants them to solve.

On their private island, the Arcangelo family defies the world: living in a decaying palazzo, making glass in a terrifying, archaic furnace, watching their absurd exhibition hall sink into disrepair. But now the world is coming to their dying outpost in a crumbling corner of a Venice that tourists never see. Police boats and vaporetti bring investigators, curiosity seekers, and one man who plans to own the property himself. With two family members consumed by the foundry fire, both mystery and opportunity have been bared to the bone.

On special assignment from Rome, Detective Nic Costa, along with his partner, his boss, and a dogged pathologist named Teresa Lupo, is getting in the way of progress, Venetian-style. They know that Uriel Arcangelo and his wife were murdered. They know that a predatory Englishman must be a suspect, as is the family of the murdered woman. And while everyone wants the Roman cops to give up and go home, they can't...because a matter of desire, death, and lies has just turned murderously on one of them.

    " The Venetian descriptions were interesting. And the overdevelopment and appeal to the lowest common denominator had more universal application. The story itself was so-so. Probably if you read some more of the series you develop an interest in the detectives. "

    " An English author writing about Venice and Rome. I loved the characters, plot, scenery. Great story. Saul Reichlin's narration was superb. "

    " Another in the Nic Costa series...good read and I didn't guess whodunit. And I didn't guess the ending. Continues in Italy with lots of good Italian stuff. "

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but found it a bit confusing at times. Not sure how I felt about the ending at all. "
