Belle of Boise, so if you want to start from the beginning click her blog name.
There are no hatchet-wielding psycho killers in my two mystery/suspense novels, Conquering Venus and Remain In Light (which is a finalist for the 2012 Townsend Prize for Fiction), but there is Frederick Dubois, who casts a long shadow over both books and will continue to do so in a third. Is Frederick Dubois a killer or a pawn in a much bigger game?
In 1968, Frederick is recruited by the French government to infiltrate the Beaux-Arts School to keep tabs on radicals that President Charles de Gaulle believe are trying to overthrow the country. Frederick poses as an art student and seduces one of his professors, Jean-Louis Laureux, who is believed to be one of the main agitators leading up to the student/worker riots. Despite being happily married to his wife, Irène, Jean-Louis falls in love with Frederick, but realizes too late that he's caught up in a deadly game of politics.
Did Frederick murder Jean-Louis or did he commit suicide? Irène Laureux searches for Frederick Dubois for 30 years, but he seems to have disappeared. With the help of a tenacious American writer named Martin Paige, Irène discovers that Frederick lives under many alias, has amassed a fortune and is rumored to be the man behind France's drug trade. The events in Remain In Light put Irène and Frederick on a collision course that will illuminate decades of secrets, lies and unrequited love.
Remain In Light is the second book in The Venus Trilogy, preceded by Conquering Venus.
I'm working on the outline for the third novel now. My goal with this
trilogy was to write each book so that it could stand alone, yet connect
a larger story and characters together. So, feel free to start with Remain In Light or Conquering Venus.
