Venice called to Urbina MacIntyre - intoxicating him with a blend of majesty, history and decay. Strolling past her magnificent palazzos and picuresque canals, the expatriate American writer knew he could love none other - and vowed to remain always. But now the elegant tranquility of his chosen city has been shattered by mayhem and murder. The bizarre theft of the corpse of a thousand year old virgin saint and the brutal slaying of a devout washerwoman thrust Urbino into the heart of a strange and sinister myster - leading the inquisitive author down a twisting perilous trail that winds toward almost certain doom among the disinterred dead on the Isle of Bones.

Two friends attempt to solve the murder of an old woman, who was devoted to the "crystal-coffined remains of Santa Teodora," in the old Church of San Gabriele.
An elegant, intricate novel that takes place in Venice.
