Thus Was Adonis Murdered
Sarah Caudwell

Both a murder mystery and comedy of errors, this delightful novel by British writer Sarah Caudwell is the story of Julia Larwood, a young barrister who finds herself accused of murder while on an art lover's tour of Venice. A friend comes to her aid and unravels the clues, discovering an art theft, an impersonation, and the identity of the killer. Our first meeting will set the stage by exploring some of the artworks mentioned in the book. Two weeks later, we'll meet to discuss the novel. Books are available in the Museum Shop.

Thus Was Adonis MurderedBy Sarah Caudwell
