WELCOME TO THE DARK SIDE OF VENICE – WHERE THE WOLVES LIVE . . . .
Venice, 16th century.
The city has secrets kept in the shadows.
The staggering wealth of Venice contrasts the brutal lives of those in the ghetto.
Opportunistic merchants arrive to make their fortune.
Deception, malice and perversion thrive, leading to the emergence of a dark society – The Wolves of Venice.
Drawn into the Wolves’ plots are the innocents – including Marco Gianetti, assistant to Tintoretto – Ira Tabat, a Jewish merchant – Giorgio Gabal, an artist’s apprentice – and Giovanni Spoletto, the doomed castrato – all manipulated by the likes of Pietro Aretino, the courtesan Tita Boldini and the spy Adamo Baptista.
The lives of these characters criss-cross one another.
Their destinies intermingle in a Venice corrupted by spies lingering in the shadows, working for paymasters that change allegiance with the wind.
As the betrayals, murders and tragedies continue, will anyone be able to bring the Wolves of Venice to justice?
