While on holiday in Italy, Hetty is hired by the owners of a hotel, a boy's parents who have been receiving fingers with notes demanding ransom. They believe it is the Mafia. Hetty discovers Gianni has run up gambling debts which have been mysteriously paid; she is suspicious of his roommate. Gianni's sister brings the ransom but is informed his body has been found--with its eyes (and little fingers) missing. Geoffrey, Hetty's young associate, traces Gianni's roommate to a mortuary, and she deduces it is part of a scheme to provide body parts for transplants. Written by
