My Costco Connection came today and the featured author (also known as “Pennie’s pick” after Costco Book Buyer, Pennie Clark Ianniciello), is Diana Norman. Her book, Mistress of the Art of Death, is the pick of the month which, I would guess, would almost guarantee Ms. Norman some kind of bestseller status.
Mistress of the Art of Death is set in the 12th Century and narrated by Adelia, an Italian doctor and early predecessor to the modern day medical examiner.
Norman admits she took tremendous liberties in creating Adelia, her freethinking woman pathologist . . ., who travels with a Jew an a Moor to the site of the murder investigation.
You can win a signed copy of Norman’s book if you are a Costco member by sending a card with your name, membership number, address and daytime phone number to:
