Summary

Venice, 1954. Rosy Gilchrist thinks luck may be on her side. Her boss at the British Museum has chosen her to travel to Venice to track down a rare edition of Horace's Odes for their collection.

Things soon take a drastic downward spiral. A wealthy recluse offers a million-pound reward for anyone who can find the treasure. Soon Rosy finds herself in a race against time as her rivals will do anything for money. Even murder....

Critic reviews

"Hill's clever and laugh-aloud tales bring a whole new slant to the world of murder mysteries. Wittily written, tightly plotted and fun to read.... A sparkling gallery of characters." (Simon Brett)
"Charming, astringent and witty." ( Guardian)
