A Commissario Guido Brunetti Mystery (Book 32)
Guido Brunetti and Paola are up late when a call from Ispettore Vianello arrives, alerting the Commissario that a hand has been seen in one of Venice's canals. The body is soon found, and Brunetti is assigned to investigate the murder of a Sri Lankan immigrant. As the investigation expands, Brunetti, Vianello, Commissario Griffoni, and Signorina Elettra each assemble pieces of a puzzle that appear to have little in common. Until Brunetti stumbles over something that causes him to reflect on Italian politics and history and on the accidents that sometimes lead to revelation.
