Brunetti is investigating a cold case by request of the grand Contessa Lando-Continui, a friend of Brunetti’s mother-in-law. Fifteen years ago the Contessa’s teenage granddaughter, Manuela, was found drowning in a canal. She was rescued from the canal at the last moment, but in many ways it was too late; she suffered severe brain damage and her life was never the same again. The Contessa, unconvinced that this was an accident, implores Brunetti to find the culprit she believes was responsible. Out of a mixture of curiosity and pity, Brunetti reopens the case and finds a dark story at its heart.
