This is a fascinating new novel by Mervyn Nel. Venice experiences a series of art heists. Paintings are stolen from museums and art galleries. Chief Superintendent Gina Rosi of the Italian Police, and Harry Wilson, an art expert who does freelance work for Interpol in the United Kingdom, are commissioned to investigate.
As their investigation deepens, Harry suspects that someone in Gina’s department is providing the thieves with confidential information. Though they are often in agreement on how to take the investigation further, at times they see things differently.

They receive help from two unlikely sources. The first is Father Mancini, an elderly priest who translated an ancient manuscript from Latin into Italian; the second is a middle-aged gondolier, Sergio Alfano, who in his youth was one of Europe’s foremost art forgers. Together, they devise an ingenious plan to trap the thieves.
The Priest and the Gondolier will take readers on a fascinating journey through the beautiful city of Venice. The author will guide you through its intricate lanes and canals, allowing you to see the real ‘La Serenissima’ – or as stated in his own words, ‘as a means to experience Venice from a perspective that is anything but ordinary’.
