Death In Bagheria Promo + Giveaway!

Death In Bagheria
Susan Russo Anderson

A gripping tale of murder and deceit. A baroness poisoned... A family masking dark secrets... and one woman determined to uncover the truth.

Sicily, March 1870. When a headstrong aristocrat commissions Serafina to find her mother’s poisoner, the midwife turned sleuth travels to a windswept villa on Sicily’s gold coast where she begins her investigation of the baroness’s death. There, she meets with the irascible baron and his huge staff of servants. Adding to her peril are the ruthless attempts to foil her success by her arch enemy, Don Tigro, the local mafia capo.

Yet Serafina is unflagging in her determination to unmask the killer, despite mortal danger, the pleas of her children for her speedy return, and a longing to resume her broiling new romance with Loffredo, the lusty count of Oltramari. With the help of her friend, Rosa, two daring servants, and an unexpected visitor, she uncovers ugly entanglements that portend dire misfortune for the baroness’s heirs. Will Serafina catch the killer before his henchman throws her to her death?

About the Author

Susan Russo Anderson is a writer, mother, grandmother, widow, member of Sisters In Crime, and graduate of Marquette University. She has taught language arts and creative writing, worked for a publisher, airline, and opera company. Like Faulkner’s Dilsey, she’s seen the best and the worst, the first and the last. Through it all, and to understand it somewhat, she writes.

Death of a Serpent, the first in the Serafina Florio series, was published January 2012. It began as a painting of the Lower East Side, the landmark immigrant neighborhood in Manhattan, and wound up as a mystery story set in nineteenth-century Sicily. No More Brothers, a novella, published in May 2012, is the second in the series. The third book, Death in Bagheria, was released last December.

In between writing, revising, and editing, Susan writes for several blogs and reviews books.
