The Sam Durell Series
The Girl in the Gondola
JACKET NOTES: Durell could recognize that special knife thrust as the favorite technique of Helmuth Dinov, commander of Moscow's deadly Blue Squad Four, elite professional assassins who could kill a man in any of a hundred brutal ways.
Could Lisette Pollini tell him what Dinov was after? Or was she luring Durell to his death among the ancient monuments of Venice?
