The Urbino Macintyre Mystery Series

Liquid Desires

JACKET NOTES:  Dazzling model Flavia Brollo abruptly shatters the languid serenity of a Venetian summer afternoon by proclaiming herself the illegitimate daughter of the late Conte da Capo-Zendrini. Soon after, the unfortunate beauty is found dead--floating facedown in the Grand Canal.
Fearing scandal and its consequences, the distraught Contessa asks her good friend Urbino Macintyre to investigate--an obligation that will lead the expatriate American author and sometime sleuth into a mysterious world of fine arts, dark secrets and vile decadence...a world where art is eternal but life can be shockingly brief.
