Alvise Marangon, born in Italy but brought up in London, returns to the city of his birth and quickly becomes involved in the protection of a wealthy young Englishman and his beautiful cousin. He is then forcibly recruited into the citys powerful secret service to investigate a murder case. A reluctant spy he may be, but he is a gifted one. Amidst the world of gambling dens and courtesans, something momentous is being planned for the Feast of the Ascension, Venices most important and spectacular holiday, and it seems that only Alvise can prevent the day from turning into bloody mayhem.
