Volume 3 of the successful crime series set on Lake Garda

When their siesta on Lake Garda is interrupted by a drifting rowing boat with a corpse in it, a new adventure begins for Commissario Angelotti and his Carlotta.

The Commissario and the cheerful widow Charlotte are asked for help by the manager of a luxury hotel where strange things are happening. Shortly afterwards, a well-known lawyer is discovered dead in a rowing boat on Lake Garda. Commissario Angelotti and the carabinieri are investigating at full speed. Charlotte finds it particularly difficult this time to stay out of her partner’s case, as her friend Melina is at the top of the suspect list. With her criminal instincts and a great deal of courage, she makes a decisive contribution to solving the case. A charming and humorous read for Italy fans!
