About the Author...
Lewis Vaught grew up on a farm in central Indiana. He has been a farm hand, a student, a teacher of German and English and EFL, a reader, a writer, a proofreader, a copy editor, an editor, a programmer, a book designer, and a (barely) managing editor. He is a member of the PGI and the NAR, but not the NRA. He lives in Indianapolis with a border collie, not terribly far from his daughter and her husband and their kids. Crime in Italy is his first published novel.
About the Books...
Crime in Italy (2022)
What’s eating Iris Warner’s former husband, WarnerCorp founder and CEO Buck Warner? Iris would really like to know.
Who is trying to blackmail Ilona Marchand, WarnerCorp’s human resources supervisor? Ilona would really like to know.
Where have Ed Stroh’s stay-at-home in-laws, Eugene and Lawrence Abernathy, disappeared to? Ed would really like to know.
What’s the meaning of the list of letter pairs and the Polaroid photo that Seamus Ellenbogen bequeathed to his niece Viola Ketchum? Viola would really like to know.
To find out, they have hired private detective Leo Schwartz and his assistant Rainer Zufahl. While they are unraveling the tangled skeins of these problems, Schwartz at least doesn’t need to figure out how Phil G., his former AA protegee, really feels about him. With Phil’s revolver pointed at his chest, he knows.
And by the way, Crime in Italy really has nothing to do with law-breaking in southern Europe.
