About the Author

When Jonathan Holt first travelled to Venice, he found it shrouded in thick fog and flooded with high water. This experience inspired him to write the Carnivia Trilogy: a series of thrillers based on Italy's hidden history which capture Venice's unique combination of glamour and decay. The books in the Carnivia Trilogy have now become international bestsellers, published in 16 countries. The second novel in the trilogy was longlisted for a CWA Steel Dagger Award.

'A cracking, upmarket thriller... a rare entertainment for the thinking deckchair reader.' Saga Magazine. 'A genuinely thrilling thriller... a terrific book by any standard... outstanding.' Literary Review. '[A] diverting debut ... Holt captures the allure of Venice and its creative cyber-counterpart, and creates two forceful [...] protagonists in Kat and Holly. The author gets carried away by throwing mystery on top of mystery, but, well, that's part of the fun' Publishers Weekly. 'AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!! ... If you are a fan of Dan Brown this is certainly for you ... to say it's a page turner is an understatement! The only problem now is waiting for the next book in the trilogy!' Sam Lewis for Lovereading.co.uk. 'Jonathan Holt blasts on to the thriller scene with a high voltage, all bets are off, cracker' Crimesquad. 'Impressive... the characters are strong and Venice is a magnificent backdrop for a story of secrets and lies.' Daily Mail.
