From back cover:
"Brunetti is investigating a cold case by request of the grand Contessa Lando-Continui, a friend of Brunetti’s mother-in-law. Fifteen years ago the Contessa’s teenage granddaughter, Manuela, was found drowning in a canal. She was rescued from the canal at the last moment, but in many ways it was too late; she suffered severe brain damage and her life was never the same again. Once a passionate horse rider, Manuela, now aged thirty, cannot remember the accident, or her beloved horse, and lives trapped in an eternal youth.

The Contessa, unconvinced that this was an accident, implores Brunetti to find the culprit she believes was responsible for ruining Manuela's life. Out of a mixture of curiosity, pity and a willingness to fulfil the wishes of a loving grandmother, Brunetti reopens the case. But once he starts to investigate, Brunetti finds a murky past and a dark story at its heart. "

En pääse lauantain miittiin, mutta kirja pääsee sinne kuriirin avulla. Tarjoan kirjaa Brunettia ennenkin lukeneelle, jonka koko hyllystä en tätä kirjaa ainakaan löytänyt.
Toivottavasti kirja saa lukijan. Jos kirjan saa on tämän jo lukenut, kirjan saa antaa jollekin muulle, mutta mieluiten ainakin ensimmäinen vapautus kontrolloidusti.

It was so nice to make a virtual journey to Venice again. I was looking my old photos of Venice while reading. I found a photo of the Questura where Brunetti is working.

This is my book #74 in the Reduce Mount TBR 2018 -challence by Dove-i-libri.

Book #80 in the 2018 Keep Them Moving -challence by Booklady331

Picked this up today from Annelis's. Brunetti is an old friend, always glad to see him.
