“Cellini’s Revenge” to Be on Display at Frankfurt Book Fair’s Combined Book Exhibit
In 1956, American Catherine Evans returns home to find that her English husband, David, has been murdered. When her fingerprints are discovered on the knife lodged in his side, she is taken to trial and spends the next 12 years in Holloway prison.
Decades later, in 1995, when Catherine is 65, she learns of new DNA technology that is exonerating many criminals wrongfully convicted. She leaves her home in Vermont and heads back to England, determined to prove that she had nothing to do with David’s death.
Upon arrival at her previous hometown of Rottingdean, Catherine teams up with several allies – including the son of a woman in jail with her, to uncover the identity of the true killer. In the process, six silver cups are discovered in her old home, half of a valuable set that is engraved with the 12 astrological symbols.
The silver cups turn out to be an integral part of Catherine’s investigation. However, a sinister man begins to follow her with the intent of procuring the entire set of cups, which are quite rare and valuable. Flashbacks to 16th-century Italy chronicle the creation of the cups and how they were stolen from their creator and passed along through the centuries.
Full of twists, turns and surprises, “Cellini’s Revenge” is sure to entertain readers of mystery novels and both general and historical fiction. Follow Catherine on her intriguing journey in the pages of this engaging new book.
“Cellini’s Revenge” will be featured at the Combined Book Exhibit at the annual Frankfurt Book Fair, held in Frankfurt, Germany, on Oct. 14-18, 2009. The event boasts 6,600 exhibitors and more than 300,000 attendees from 101 different countries.
