If you appreciate an atmospheric setting and a complicated but riveting plot, you’ll certainly want to put The Abominationat the top of your “must read” list. The first book in the Carnivia Trilogy, this multi-layered thriller is set in two Venices: the modern city of today that attracts thousands of tourists and its virtual counterpart.

When a slain woman wearing the robes of a priest washes up in the city’s Grand Canal, the desecration becomes known as The Abomination. Recently promoted, Captain Katherina (Kat) Tapo of the Carabinieri is working her first murder case and is soon embroiled in an investigation as twisting as Venice’s backstreets.

The trail will take Kate to a crumbling asylum on a deserted island and to the complex of American military bases ringing the medieval city. Giving the story a decided modern twist, Kate discovers that her case is also linked to the simulated and secretive world of, where secrets are shared and anonymity guaranteed.

With a set of confusing leads seemingly going nowhere, Kate’s frustration mounts—then, inexplicably, the investigation is suddenly shut down. Sensing a conspiracy that reaches high into both the church and government, Kate isn’t about to give up now, but for her own well being, perhaps she should.

Get in on the ground floor of this gripping action trilogy, so make sure to get a copy of The Abomination and read it this summer. It promises to be a memorable, wild and very entertaining ride if you enjoy this type of adventure reading material.
