The sensational debut thriller in the internationally bestselling Carnivia Trilogy, from a Sunday Times bestseller.

Book 1 in The Carnivia Trilogy.

They found the woman's body on the steps of a church, washed up by Venice's winter tides. A tattoo on her wrist matched graffiti in an abandoned hospital, not used since the Second World War.

It's Captain Kat Tapo's first murder case, and she'll do anything to get to the truth. But as the hunt for the killer intensifies, she discovers secrets from Italy's dark wartime past that will put her in great danger...

This is the first novel in a trilogy of stylish and intelligent thrillers set in Venice from Jonathan Holt who, under the name J.P. Delaney, is also the author of the Sunday Times bestselling psychological thrillers THE GIRL BEFORE and BELIEVE ME.
