Publisher's summary

Struggling to forget a crumbling marriage, 40-year-old Anna Lucia Lottol comes to Venice to visit an old friend - but instead of finding solace, she is dragged into the police station and accused of murdering a money-laundering count with whom she had a brief affair. A US Treasury officer with brains and athleticism, Anna fights to clear her name in a seductive city full of watery illusions. As she works to pry information from a cast of recalcitrant characters sometimes denying what she sees and hears, she succeeds in unleashing a powerful foe bent on destroying her. Will she save herself and vanquish her enemies, including her darkest fears?

A captivating tapestry of murder, betrayal, and family, Venetian Blood is a story of one woman's brave quest for the truth - before it's too late.

"A riveting whodunit that makes full use of its dramatic setting." (Kirkus Reviews)

Excellent Mystery and Narration

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I was so very pleased that the Italian sentences in the book were actually correct (for the most part) and the pronunciation very pleasing. That is one of my gripes with many narrations that either misspell words or make use of a narrator that has issues with the foreign language. In this case both the writing and the narration were nearly perfect. That made my experience so much more enjoyable.
The mystery in itself was also very well developed and truly surprising in its ultimate reveal. I did start guessing at the conclusion sometimes towards the second part of the story, but even then I was kept wondering.
The writing is excellent and the narration superb.
With the Venice backdrop how can you go wrong? There are even scenes from their famous "Carnevale"... I know you'll enjoy this audiobook.
