Swiss Vendetta : A Mystery
by Tracee De Hahn


Overview -

"Swiss Vendetta is a true page turner. From the cook and maids to the Marquise and her family, de Hahn captures the nuances of her characters' backgrounds and perspectives. I found the plot fascinating, and de Hahn builds the tension and suspense perfectly to a satisfying conclusion. I was left wanting to read more about Agnes, and I am looking forward to her next adventure "--Charles Todd

Inspector Agnes L thi, a Swiss-American police officer in Lausanne, Switzerland, has just transferred to the Violent Crimes unit from Financial Crimes to try to shed all reminders of her old life following her husband's death. Now, on the eve of the worst blizzard Lausanne has seen in centuries, Agnes has been called to investigate her very first homicide case. On the lawn of the grand Ch teau Vallotton, at the edge of Lac L man, a young woman has been found stabbed to death. The woman, an appraiser for a London auction house, had been taking inventory at the ch teau, a medieval fortress dripping in priceless works of art and historical treasures.

Agnes finds it difficult to draw answers out of anyone--the tight-lipped Swiss family living in the ch teau, the servants who have been loyal to the family for generations, the aging WWII survivor who lives in the neighboring mansion, even the American history student studying at the Vallotton ch teau's library. As the storm rages on, roads become impassible, the power goes out around Lausanne, and Agnes finds herself trapped in the candlelit halls of the ch teau with all the players of the mystery, out of her depth in her first murder case and still struggling to stay afloat after the death of her husband.
