The girl in the feathered mask was just another Carnival reveller. She was dancing in the streets at midnight, anonymous in the Venice crowds.
So nobody noticed when she was bundled into a van and driven high into the hills. Nobody heard her scream.
Captain Kat Tapo, of the Venice police, is considered too headstrong to lead a high-profile kidnap case. But Kat has reasons of her own to mount a secret investigation. What she discovers will rewrite the past... and send shockwaves into the present.
This is the second novel in a trilogy of stylish and intelligent thrillers set in Venice from Jonathan Holt who, under the name J.P. Delaney, is also the author of the Sunday Times bestselling psychological thrillers THE GIRL BEFORE and BELIEVE ME.
