Donna Leon (author), Lilian Schreuder (translator)
Een bootongeval in de Venetiaanse lagune, waarbij twee Amerikaanse toeristen gewond raken, trekt commissario Brunetti’s aandacht als blijkt dat de twee mede-opvarenden de slachtoffers in het ziekenhuis achterlieten en ervandoor gingen. Was er meer aan de hand dan onschuldig joyriding en is dat de reden waarom de twee Italiaanse mannen niets met het ongeval te maken wilden hebben?
