Venice—the city of canals, masks … and murder?

Tour guide Lana Hansen is having the time of her life leading a Carnevale-themed trip in Venice, Italy. Her merry group loves exploring the city’s rich artistic and cultural heritage together, as well as sampling the sumptuous cuisine the island city is famous for.

Their invitation to a masquerade ball, complete with historical costumes and fancy masks, should be the culmination of a perfect week. Yet when the guest of honor is bludgeoned to death, all eyes are on the partygoers—including Lana and her group!

Was it an environmental protester, a corporate rival, or a disgruntled business associate that did him in? Or could someone have another reason to want the cruise ship executive dead?

Things go from bad to worse when Lana’s boyfriend, Alex, unexpectedly knocks on her hotel room door and shares a shocking secret—one that gets him arrested for murder!

Can Lana sleuth out the real killer’s identity before her partner’s visit to the Floating City becomes permanent?
