ABOUT THE BOATMAN

In Venice - city of secrets, city of lies - two women search for a killer...

They found the woman’s body on the steps of a church, washed up by Venice’s winter tides. A tattoo on her wrist matched graffiti in an abandoned hospital, not used since the Second World War.

It’s Captain Kat Tapo’s first murder case, and she’ll do anything to get to the truth. But as the hunt for the killer intensifies, she discovers secrets from Italy’s dark wartime past that will put her in great danger…

ABOUT THE ABDUCTION
A teenage girl is kidnapped in Venice. The race to save her will uncover a conspiracy powerful men will kill to keep hidden.

The girl in the feathered mask was just another Carnival reveller, escaping the Venice crowds. When she was bundled into a van and driven high into the hills, nobody heard her scream.

Kat Tapo's bosses in the Venice police say she is too headstrong to lead a high profile kidnap case. But Kat has reasons of her own to mount a secret investigation - and what she discovers will rewrite the past… and send shockwaves into the present.

ABOUT THE TRAITOR
He died in the darkness, surrounded by friends. They found him at sunrise, on Venice’s most popular beach. His throat had been cut, his tongue removed.

Captain Kat Tapo suspects a ritual murder with Masonic roots. The brotherhood won’t give up its secrets to a policewoman – but Kat won’t give up the hunt. She’ll use all the allies she has: friends, lovers, hackers, spies.

But shocking truths about the case are about to come to light. And when they do, it will be a race against time to unlock the secrets of Italy’s past – before Venice itself starts to burn...
