"A dramatic and deeply satisfying climax... a high-stakes mystery in which the setting vibrates with as much life as the story itself." -- Publishers Weekly

As Venice braces for a winter tempest, intrepid Italian sleuth Commissario Guido Brunetti finds out that an archaeologist and old friend has been savagely beaten at the palazzo home of opera singer Flavia Petrelli.

Then, as the floodwaters rise, the corpse of a museum director is discovered -- and Brunetti must wade through the chaotic city to solve his deadliest case yet.

"An evocative peep into the dark underworld of the beauteous city." -- Time Out London

"A superb police detective." -- Library Journal

Also published under the title Death in High Water
