Mary Ann's Tea Room
Left Bank Books and Mary Ann's Tea Room welcome St. Louis native and award-winning mystery author Elaine Viets, who will sign and discuss her new Angela Richman novel, Ice Blonde, at a special Mother's Day High Tea event!
Juliet Du Pres, the daughter of a wealthy Chouteau Forest family, sneaks out of her house to go to a high school party with her forbidden boyfriend, Dex, a low-rent mechanic's son. She wears only heels and a blue velvet dress in sub-zero Missouri weather. At the party are drugs, booze, and rivals for Juliet's dazzling blonde beauty. On the drive home, Juliet has a fight with her boyfriend, runs into the woods near her house and disappears in the snow. Was Juliet kidnapped? Murdered? Or is she hiding out with a high school stud? Death investigator Angela Richman fights to find the missing girl and save a young man's life.
