Set in two Venices, the modern physical world and its virtual counterpart, this is a propulsive tale of murder, corruption, and international intrigue in which Carabiniere Captain Kat Tapo must unravel a dark conspiracy linking the CIA and the Catholic Church.

The victim is a woman, dressed in the sacred robes of a Catholic priest - a desecration that becomes known as the Abomination. Working her first murder case, Captain Kat Tapo embarks on a trail that proves as elusive and complicated as the city's labyrinthine backstreets.

  • "As fireworks crackle over Venice to celebrate the feast of the Epiphany, the freezing tides deposit a sinister bundle on the steps of Santa Maria della Salute. It is the body of a woman, dressed in the robes of a priest - what the Vatican calls 'an abomination'. Captain Kat Tapo of the Carabineri has been pressing to work on a murder case - but she never expected anything as dark as this. A tattoo on the victim's wrist matches graffiti in an abandoned lunatic asylum on an uninhabited island. Arcane symbols hint at rites by female cults. Then a journalist investigating war crimes at a nearby US Army base is found dead - and Kat's case is immediately shut down."

  • ""Ein Weib soll keine Männertracht tragen; denn wer solches tut, ist dem HERRN, deinem Gott, ein Gräuel." 5. MOSE 22,5 Es ist die Nacht von La Befana, und ganz Venedig feiert. Nur auf dem kleinen Platz vor Santa Maria della Salute herrscht tödliche Stille. Der Canale Grande hat eine Leiche angespült: Die Frau liegt auf den Stufen der Kirche, und sie trägt die Robe eines Priesters - ein unaussprechliches Sakrileg, das es in der katholischen Kirche nicht geben darf. Capitano Katerina Tapo wird auf den Fall angesetzt, und sie stösst bei ihren Ermittlungen auf weit schrecklichere Gräuel, in die nicht nur die Kirche verwickelt ist ... Diesen Thriller nicht zu lesen, wäre ein Sakrileg. Jonathan Holt studierte Literatur in Oxford und ist heute Creative Director einer Werbeagentur. In seiner Studienzeit verbrachte er einen Sommer lang in Italien und verliebte sich in Land, Leute und das Essen. Seit dieser Zeit kehrt er jedes Jahr nach Italien zurück und bereist das Land. Mit seinem ersten Venedig-Thriller "Marter" eroberte er aus dem Stand Platz 1 der italienischen Bestsellerliste."
