September 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
Kirkus Reviews calls Venetian Blood: Murder in a Sensuous City, “A riveting whodunit that makes full use of its dramatic setting.”
Left Coast Writers presents Christine Evelyn Volker’s book launch. Come hear her discuss this international mystery and the city which inspired it.
Struggling to forget a crumbling marriage, Anna Lucia Lottol travels to Venice to visit an old friend. But instead of finding solace, she is dragged into the police station and accused of murdering a money-laundering count with whom she had a brief affair. A US Treasury officer with brains and athleticism, Anna fights to clear her name in a city of illusions, with recalcitrant characters denying what she sees and hears. Her mission stirs up a powerful foe bent on destroying her. Will she overcome her adversaries, including her deepest fears?
This multi-layered work is a mystery, a personal, psychological journey, and a dark love poem to the city of Venice.
