The Urbino Macintyre Mystery Series

Death in a Serene City

JACKET NOTES:  Venice called to Urbino Macintyre--intoxicating him with a blend of majesty, history and decay. Strolling past her magnificent palazzos and picturesque canals, the expatriate American writer knew he could love none other-and vowed to remain always.
But now the elegant tranquility of his chosen city has been shattered by mayhem and murder. The bizarre theft of the corpse of a thousand-year-old virgin saint and the brutal slaying of a devout washerwoman thrust Urbino into the heart of a strange and sinister mystery--leading the inquisitive author down a twisting, perilous trail that winds toward almost certain doom among the disinterred dead on the Isle of Bones.
