Murder simply doesn't happen in the lovely Tuscan hill town of Borgo San Cristoforo, not even to unpleasant, unscrupulous real estate agents like Ettore Fagiolo. Found floating facedown in a swimming pool, the gossip is that Ettore was blind drunk, and drowned. The alternative is unthinkable.
But a crushed skull proves otherwise. Hilary Wright first spotted the body from her bedroom window. Now, along with several other English expatriates, as well as many locals who had secret reasons to loathe Ettore, she is a suspect. Worse, she had her own dark reason to want Ettore dead. Drawn into the investigation to save her neck, Hilary and Dr. Ruggero Di Girolamo, the magistrate in charge of the case, discover the depraved, twisted life of the victim, and the surprising face of his killer.
