The Achille Peroni Mystery Series

A Funeral of Gondolas

Jacket Notes: Inspector Achille Peroni, 'the Rudolf Valentino of the Italian police, is an Anglophile Neapolitan - and what better combination could there he to suit a man to the high-life and low-life of Italian crime? Seconded to Venice, however, Peroni is soon bored by petty crime until a murder galvanises him to enthusiastic activity.
Amongst the criminal freemasonry of the gondoliers, and the crumbling palaces of the impoverished aristocracy, Peroni finds a web of intrigue which appears to be linked with the eighteenth-century Venetian playwright, Goldoni. But is it fact or fantasy? And where, among the canals and lagoons, will the murderer strike again?
