In a near future where the Catholic Church has declared that choral music is inappropriate for the Eucharistic liturgy, the Patriarchy of Venice remains the only diocese that has not yet conformed. The Cardinal patriarch must navigate a series of complicated challenges, including the involvement of his niece with the city’s police commissioner and the interests of powerful individuals in government and international trade. As dissent grows and escalates into social, political, and criminal consequences, the independent state of Venice is also dealing with the approaching Historical Regatta. In the midst of it all, a conspiracy erupts on the Lagoon during the climax of the gondoliers’ race. Follow the twists and turns of this gripping tale in The Enemies of Nicolo Basti.
