Four Strangers in a Dead Woman’s Villa

By | Blog, Edmondson | No Comments

The Villa in Italy

An enchanting, tightly woven mystery set in the seductive sunlight of an Italian summer.

Italy, 1958.

None of the four strangers summoned to the magical Villa Dante on the coast of Liguria knew Beatrice Malaspina. Yet she named them in her will: Delia, an opera singer with no voice; George, a physicist haunted by the horrors unleashed at Los Alamos; Marjorie, a struggling detective novelist, and Lucius, a New York banker with grim memories of the war in Europe.
They find a Paladian villa with enchanting frescoes, a mediaeval tower, and a garden that leads to the sea. The villa seems spellbound, with its tower locked and its fountains dry.
Why are they there?
Who was Beatrice Malaspina?
… And what is the devastating secret hidden in her villa?

Available on Amazon US and Amazon UK (over 500 reviews).
