Vampires in Venice - Venice, 1575 – the jewelled city of northern Italy is in the throes of unimaginable horror as one of the worst plagues ever to strike mankind: the Black Death takes hold. Mass graves swell with thousands of bodies. A legend grows that a vampire known as a “Shroud-eater” is the cause of the plague. The Shroud-eater feasts on corpses and then rises from the earth to infect the living. More than four hundred years later Italian forensic anthropologist and CSI specialist Matteo Borrini leads a team excavating a 16th Century mass grave on one of Venice’s outlying islands. He uncovers a skeleton unlike any he had ever seen before. A brick appears to have been inserted between the jaws of the skull. Why? The answer shocks him. He believes the object was part of a macabre ritual designed to ‘kill’ a vampire. The discovery launches Borrini on a forensic investigation unlike any he has ever attempted as he attempts to put a face and a life to the Vampire of Venice.
