The Bone Thieves of San Marco

“You sat in the Doge’s prison, your family fortune was seized. And then you were suddenly back again. From what they say, you are now a powerful man.”

1570. Carnevale - All of Venice has gone crazy! The city is one single boisterous party, a tremendous orgy. However, Davide Venier has no time for pleasure. Thieves have made use of this city-wide state of revelry and purloined from the cathedral the bones of St. Mark - Venice’s raison d'être. Davide must reacquire the relics before the public hears about what has happened. He soon learns that a foreign power wishes to damage La Serenissima. But which of Venice’s numerous enemies is behind this? The Genoese? The Ottomans? Perhaps the Pope himself?

Maiwald’s second sweeping adventure and spy novel set against the opulent backdrop of Renaissance Venice
