Local author Christine Evelyn Volker will discuss and sign her debut mystery, Venetian Blood, Murder in a Sensuous City. This will be her publication party, and all are invited to attend.
In the book, Anna visits Venice to see an old friend and escape her failing, childless marriage. Instead of finding serenity, she is dragged into the police station where she becomes a ruthless detective’s murder suspect. A captivating tapestry of murder, betrayal and family, Venetian Blood is the story of one woman’s brave quest for the truth – before it’s too late.
Kirkus Reviews calls the book “a riveting whodunit that makes full use of its dramatic setting.” San Francisco Book Review calls it “a beautifully if not deliciously described story.”
After a career in finance, in the US and abroad, Christine returns to her roots in the humanities with this novel. She secured a BA and MLS from University at Albany – SUNY, and an MBA in Finance from UC Berkeley. An intrepid traveler, she lives in the Bay Area and is writing full time.
