Assassin Screed

Back in her vampire days, Anne Rice would show up to book signings in a coffin. Rather makes you wonder what they’ll carry her in on now that she’s on the side of the angels.

Not that Rice has strayed far from the supernatural; she’s just traded caskets and chronicles for crosses and convolutions. Her latest offering, Of Love and Evil, concerns an angel hiring an ex-assassin to solve a poisoning and unravel a dybbuk haunting in 15th century Rome.

This is a signing only, with no reading or talk given.
