Two Italian detectives become involved in a bizarre double murder that occurs in Venice. The victim is a member of an eccentric family sur-named Arcangeli. They live on an island where they operate a glassmaking furnace, the art of glassmaking having been passed down to them from their father. The two cops are called in to shuffle papers and rubberstamp the opinion of the town fathers, which is that the glassmaker and his wife died as the result of a domestic dispute. But, being who they are, the cops cannot let their doubts about the truth of the matter rest.[return]The story is full of detail and moves rather slow. I had a hard time getting into it and didn't find it that suspenseful. Those looking for a 'literary' read and who would enjoy immersing themselves in the Venetian setting would probably enjoy it more.
