About the Book

Another riveting murder mystery from Ottawa writer and artist Ilze Berzins paints a jigsaw picture of the dark and terrifying legacy of post-Soviet Latvia. Expatriots-‘expats” Arnie Dambergs and Vizma Gross confront the lawless frontiers of the newly emerging nation while it struggles to shrug off the legacy of a brutal and repressive regime. Tag along and you will discover some of Riga’s darker corners, as well as the Baltic Riviera and the picturesque countryside. Together, Arnie and Vizma face danger and death as they become entangled in an explosive East-meets-West scandal.

post-Soviet Latvia.
