FAIR HAVEN – River Road Books will host a reading at 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, by local author Laury A. Egan, who will discuss and sign copies of her new book, Jenny Kidd.
A psychological suspense tale set in Venice, the novel features a young American artist, Jenny Kidd, who attends a masked ball at the Palazzo Barbon and meets the seductive Caterina Barbon and her brother, Sebastiano. They entice Jenny into a world of glittering façades that cloak sexual perversion, art forgery and murder.
Reviewer Jerry L. Wheeler called the book “a little gem” and “a top-notch thriller.” The author will also sign copies of her collection, Fog and Other Stories, and two poetry books. Her website: www.lauryaegan.com
