In this set of five standalone novels, Jim Williams explores the central subject of the classic murder mystery, namely the murder itself, to see if there’s anything new that can be done with it. The author transports the reader to different times and places: from Voltaire and Casanova’s 18th century Venice, through two world wars, to present day Southern France. Each novel ends with a brief set of reader’s notes.
