2017-2018 Sarton Book Awards Winner in Contemporary Fiction USA Best Book Awards Finalist in Best Cover Design: Fiction 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist in First Novel 2018 National Indie Excellence Awards Finalist in New Fiction 2018 International Book Awards Finalist in Best New Fiction 2018 International Book Awards Finalist in Fiction: Mystery/Suspense "In Volker's debut mystery, an American financial expert unravels a web of mystery, corruption, and danger hidden in one of the world's most beautiful cities. But as she gets closer to the truth, she repeatedly finds herself in mortal danger. The subtitle of Volker's novel signals the importance of the Venetian setting to her compelling, intricate narrative. Her lush descriptions evoke the city's glories...while skillfully building an ominous tone. A riveting whodunit that makes full use of its dramatic setting."
--Kirkus Reviews

"With lush language, Volker transports us to Venice, Italy, and the murder of Count Sergio Corrin. From the opening pages, we are swept up by language, intrigue, and a tantalizing mystery. Volker reaffirms the abiding adage: describe a world well enough and the reader is fully contained in it."
--Nina Schuyler, author of the award-winning book The Translator

"Volker's Venetian Blood weaves alluring language, seductive setting, the charm of shadowed history, and cunning intrigue into a (modern) historical mystery so tantalizing you will be swept away from word one. Anna Lucia Lottol, a financial investigator for the US Department of Treasury, falls under suspicion by Italian officials in the death of one Count Sergio Corrin whilst visiting that most beautiful of riparian cities, Venice. This story drew me in straightaway, and I was loathe to stop, to leave the wind--and water--swept lure of an ancient city with a modern puzzle. The language and phrasing are delicious, pure poetry. Highly recommended!"
--Manhattan Book Review

"Venetian Blood was a beautifully, if not deliciously, described story. The author has a real talent for transporting the reader right into the heart of Venice and its mesmerizing canals, palazzos, and restaurants, exposing all our senses to a magical treat. In fact, the scenery often nearly jumps off the page... I thought the attention to detail throughout this book was superb. The story was also absorbing, and I felt drawn into Anna's life almost immediately. Overall, there were more than enough twists and turns to heighten the suspense and keep me turning pages. The ending was one I hadn't anticipated until I was near the end."
--San Francisco Book Review

Descripción del producto

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. A US Treasury officer with brains and athleticism, Anna fights to clear her name in a seductive city full of watery illusions. As she works to pry information from a cast of recalcitrant characters sometimes denying what she sees and hears, she succeeds in unleashing a powerful foe bent on destroying her. Will she save herself and vanquish her enemies, including her darkest fears? A mysterious tapestry of murder, betrayal, and family, Venetian Blood is a story of one woman's brave quest for the truth --before it's too late.
