Who do you trust when simply everyone is wearing a mask?
A winter wedding. Venice, 1923. Posie Parker, London’s premier female private detective, is getting married. But on arrival in Venice, Posie finds she is walking into a nightmare. Her lodgings on the Grand Canal are consumed by fire, her famous fiancé is preoccupied, and most bizarrely of all, her hostess, the Countess Romagnoli, confesses she has a stalker and fears for her life.
Tasked with protecting the countess, Posie investigates the other house guests and finds that there are disguises everywhere. And when a terrible murder is committed, with the prospect of the killer striking yet again, Posie realizes she must separate out the shadows of the past and the realities of the present in order to uncover the murderer before it is too late.
In her most dangerous case yet, Posie works alongside both familiar and new colleagues in order to get at the truth. But will the truth come at a terrible price?
This is a classic golden age of crime murder mystery which will appeal to fans of Agatha Christie and Downton Abbey. Murder in Venice is the sixth book in the Posie Parker Mystery Series, although the novel can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.
