Want to hear Venice's secrets?
When Jonathan Holt first travelled to Venice, he found it shrouded in thick fog and flooded with high water. This experience inspired him to write the Carnivia Trilogy: a series of thrillers based on Italy's hidden history which capture Venice's unique combination of glamour and decay. The books in the Carnivia Trilogy have now become international bestsellers, published in 16 countries. The second novel in the trilogy was longlisted for a CWA Steel Dagger Award.
