From his office on the Street of the Assassins, Nathan Sutherland enjoys a steady but unexciting life translating Italian DIY manuals.

All this changes dramatically when he is offered a large sum of money to look after a small package containing an extremely valuable antique prayer book illustrated by a Venetian master.

But is it a stolen masterpiece - or a brilliant fake?

Unknown to Nathan, from a vast mansion on the Grand Canal twin brothers Domenico and Arcangelo Moro, motivated by nothing more than mutual hatred, have been playing out a complex game of art theft for twenty years. And now Nathan finds himself unwittingly drawn into their deadly business . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It is no surprise to find that Philip Gwynne Jones lives in Venice... art and architecture interweave into a story that builds to an almost surreal climax.' - Daily Mail 

'The Venetian setting is vividly described and Gwynne Jones's good, fluent writing makes for easy reading.' - Jessica Mann, Literary Review

'Sinister and shimmering, The Venetian Game is as haunting and darkly elegant as Venice itself.' - L.S. Hilton, bestselling author of Maestra

'...a playful novel, recounted by a witty and engaging narrator ... as Venetian as a painting by Bellini (or a glass of Bellini). Oh, and it's also an unputdownable thriller.' - Gregory Dowling, author of Ascension

'A crime book for people with sophisticated tastes: Venice, opera, renaissance art, good food and wine... I enjoyed all that and more.' - The Crime Warp
