Summary (From the publisher):

In The Girl of His Dreams when a friend of Brunettiís brother, a priest recently returned from years of missionary work, calls with a request, Brunetti suspects the manís motives. A new, American-style Protestant sect has begun to meet in the city, and itís possible the priest is merely apprehensive of the competition. But the preacher could also be fleecing his growing flock, so Brunetti and Paola, along with Inspector Vianello and his wife, go undercover.

But the investigation has to be put aside when, one cold and rainy morning, a body is found floating in a canal. It is a child, a gypsy girl. Brunetti suspects she fell off a nearby roof while fleeing an apartment she had robbed. He has to inform the distrustful parents, encamped on the mainland, and soon finds himself haunted by the crime--and the girl.
