About this book
A brand new novel from the bestselling author, featuring Commissario Brunetti. When a man is found stabbed to death in one of Venice's canals, it seems as if he appeared from nowhere and the case is at a dead end. A dark and compelling thriller set before a harrowing exploration of the meat industry. 'Leon's books are a joy' "Guardian"
When a body is found floating in a canal, disfigured with multiple stab wounds, Commissario Brunetti is called to investigate and is convinced he recognises the man from somewhere. However, with no identification except for distinctive shoes the man was wearing, and no reports of people missing from the Venice area, the case cannot progress.
