    DescriptionAurelio Zen returns to his native Venice to investigate the disappearance of a rich American resident but he soon learns that, amid the hazy light and shifting waters of the lagoon, nothing is what it seems. As Zen is drawn deeper into the complex and ambiguous mysteries surrounding the discovery of a skeletal corpse on an ossuary island in the north lagoon, he is also forced to confront a series of disturbing revelations about his own life.

    Review quote
    "Surprisingly moving . . . a first-rate mystery and a fine novel."--"Washington Post Book World" "Dibdin's plot is as elegantly elaborate as the crisscrossing canals of Venice."--"Newsday" "The author has transcended his own superb craftsmanship by working [two] story lines into a structure of pure steel, and by making it the foundation of a serious study of modern-day Venice."--"The New York Times Book Review" "From the Trade Paperback edition."

In this new mystery, Zen returns to his native Venice, searching for a missing American millionaire and encountering an assortment of corpses--including a suspiciously new skeleton that surfaces on the Isle of the Dead. "From the Trade Paperback edition.
