Riveting novel about revenge, justice and the shifting nature of truth.

The New York Times - Joseph Finder

Venice, the ancient city-state so renowned for conspiracies and assassinations, where out-of-favor doges were blinded over live coals and bodies strung up between the ''fatal pillars'' of the Doge's Palace turned red from blood, was largely spared the bombing of the last world war. It was never a center of wartime intrigue. Yet Kanon has chosen Venice as the unlikely location for his latest novel, Alibi, and it turns out to have yielded his richest, most full-blooded work to date.
