Publication Party! Christine Evelyn Volker discusses and signs "Venetian Blood"
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes Christine Evelyn Volker to the store to discuss and sign, Venetian Blood, on Sunday, August 13th, at 3:00pm. This will be her publication party and all are welcome to attend.
Struggling to forget a crumbling marriage, forty-year-old Anna Lucia Lottol comes 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. Anna, a US Treasury officer with brains and athleticism, fights to clear her name in a seductive city of watery illusions. As she tries to pry clues from a cast of uncooperative characters who implausibly deny what she sees and hears, she begins to question whether they are hiding something … or if she is losing touch with reality. Racing to unlock secrets, she succeeds instead in unleashing a powerful foe bent on destroying her. Will she save herself and vanquish her enemies, including her darkest fears? 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.
