Iris Dittmeyer’s life was losing its luster. The retired widow needed a distraction after her granddaughter’s daycare enrollment meant she was no longer needed for babysitting. The discovery of an acclaimed Columbus letter in a battered filing cabinet provides just the mystery she’s been craving. But when her new diversion turns deadly, it’s up to Iris to find the killer--before her family becomes his next target.
Giovanni di Caro claims knowledge about historic documents and, and with a little coaxing, he agrees to assist Iris in the investigation. The charming Italian considers himself a craftsman, but the international authorities have another name for Giovanni. He’s the notorious forger of Galileo’s Sidereus Nuncius.
They’re a mismatched duo from opposite sides of the world. She’s an early riser, a tea drinker, and a busybody. He’s a night owl, coffee devotee, and country music fan. Their relationship?
It depends on who you ask.
