Set during Venice's carnival, we follow Urbino Macintyre in his second adventure in sleuthing. Proust's "A la recherche du temps perdu" is kinda of the key of the mystery. Like the first novel, literature plays a big part in the plot and how the characters act and think. A young man is killed in an infamous back street of Venice during carnival and his murder starts a domino effect in the lives of the people caught in the middle. It's well written, the carnival is made part of the plot not just scenery. I should have paid more attention to Proust but then again sometimes it's fun to be surprised. I'm looking forward to the next novel ( )
