Description
When a body is found floating in a canal, strangely disfigured and with multiple stab wounds, Commissario Brunetti is called to investigate, in his 21st novel by Silver Dagger Winner Donna Leon. He is convinced that he recognizes the man from somewhere, but with a pair of distinctive shoes as the only clue, he cannot proceed. Then Brunetti recalls a violent farmers' protest that took place the previous year, and suddenly remembers the victim. On this fragile lead, Brunetti and Inspector Vianello set out from Venice's placid canals to the slaughterhouse, and a terrifying world of blackmail and corruption, in a harrowing exploration of the dark side of Italy's food industry.

"A fine, atmospheric novel. Twenty-one books on, [the author] has lost none of her delightful skill and wit."Evening Standard (London)
