Someone has stolen pages out of several rare books at a prestigious Venetian library. Surely the culprit must be the man who requested the volumes, a professor from the US. The problem? The man fled the library earlier, and a check of his credentials proves he doesn't exist. The suspects multiply, and when a seemingly harmless theologian, who had spent years reading at the library, turns up murdered, Commissario Brunetti must question his expectations about what makes a person innocent or guilty.
