James Ravenabout this book: Venice is doomed - that's the threat facing the world's most beautiful city after a known terrorist is found dead. He leaves a note behind in which he reveals an appalling plan to let off a series of bombs aimed at claiming hundreds of lives and destroying scores of ancient buildings. But as the bombs go off and the police start to investigate they discover the shocking truth behind the attacks. And it's not at all what they expected to find!
A trip to Venice some years ago inspired me to write this book. It occurred to me then that the city is particularly vulnerable because the buildings are very old and it's prone to serious flooding. A terrorist attack would surely cause immense damage to lives and the infrastructure.
I enjoyed researching the book because it meant returning to Venice on a number of occasions. It's a city I love and I hate the thought that it is suffering serious deterioration.
The photograph used on the cover I actually took myself during one of my trips there and then treated it with a reddish tint.
