Publisher's Summary

It is November 2nd, 2017. All Souls Day. On the Day of the Dead, the citizens of Venice make their way to the cemetery island of San Michele to pay their respects to the departed. When an empty coffin is unearthed in the English section of the graveyard, a day of quiet reflection for Nathan Sutherland becomes a journey into the dark past of a noble Venetian family.

A British journalist, investigating the events of 40 years previously, disappears. A young tourist - with an unhealthy interest in Venice's abandoned islands- is found drowned in the icy lagoon. A terrible secret is about to be brought to light and a deadly reckoning awaits on Venice's Isle of the Dead.

Dismal plot.

When I visited my dentist he tried to ease my pain by telling minute by minute story of his visit to Venice. There was menu of every restaurant and bar he visited, what he ordered and comment how it tasted and if it was served with happiness. It was better than what I got from plot and content of this book. …… When empty coffin is discovered (key to the story), makes dentist version, that included pulling my tooth, more realistic. PL
