Dressed for Death (U.S. Edition)
The Anonymous Venetian (U.K. Edition)

JACKET NOTES:  "The body lay on its back. He peered into the shadows, following with his eyes the legs... up to the lacy red underpants that showed under the bright red dress. He stared a moment longer. 'Cazzo!' he exclaimed. 'What's the matter?' the other one asked. 'It's a man.'"Commissario Guido Brunetti's hopes of a refresing family holiday in the mountains are one again dashed when a gruesome discovery is made in Marghere--a body so badly beaten the face is completely unrecognizable.Brunetti searches Venice for someone who can identify the dead man. But he is met with a wall of silence.Then he receives a telephone call from a contact who promises some tantalizing information. And before the nigh is out Brunetti is confronting yet another appalling and apparently senseless death...
