The Venetian Game by Philip Gwynne Jones

As honorary consul in Venice, Nathan Sutherland’s duties usually involve helping tourists rather than criminals. He lives quietly in the Street of Assassins with his spectacularly bad-tempered cat, translating instruction manuals and waiting for the return of his wife. When a stranger offers him a vast sum of money to look after a package his first instinct is to refuse and steer clear of the whole matter. But, unwittingly, he is drawn into a world of crime, hatred and deception. Atmospheric, charming and surprisingly exciting.
