The Abomination (Paperback)

Jonathan Holt


It is midnight on the feast day of La Befana, and Venice is celebrating. Masked figures crowd the vaporettos, fireworks burst over the tower of St. Mark, and every trattoria hums with grappa-soaked gossip. But on the steps of Santa Maria, there is a deathly hush. A body has washed up from the Grand Canal: a woman, wearing the robes of a Catholic priest - a desecration known in the Catholic Church as an Abomination.This is Captain Katerina Tapo's first murder case, an investigation with sinister roots in post Cold War Italy that will test loyalties Kat did not know she had as she travels through the labyrinthine backstreets of Venice, to an abandoned asylum on the uninhabited island of Poveglia, via, a dark replica of Venice where friend and foe alike reside in total anonymity...
