Rendezvous at a Small Hotel is the fifth volume in the exciting series about the Hotel Marcel in the city of Paris near The Eiffel Tower. Elizabeth, an American widow in her 60s, returns to the small hotel, as she does yearly. For her, it is a visit with a purpose--to reconnect with her artist lover, Brit, with whom she has lost contact. Her search leads her to the Normandy beaches and the American cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. In the wake of her pursuit, a number of adventures occur, involving a vindictive Qatari sheikh, a secret wedding, aiding and abetting the planting of illegal Italian grape seedlings at the chateau of her American friend, La Marquise de Chevigny, and a final rendezvous at the Hotel Marcel.
The City of Light is Elizabeth's passion to which she is drawn every few months. In the sixth volume, entitled Intrigue at a Small Hotel, Elizabeth is troubled by a malicious woman from the past who seeks to ruin her life. Intrigue will be available in early 2016."

Until the mid-twentieth century the Western imagination seemed intent on viewing Rome purely in terms of its classical past or as a stop on the Grand Tour. This collection of essays looks at Rome from a postmodern perspective, including analysis of the city's 'unmappability', its fragmented narratives and its iconic status in literature and film.
BOOK 2 IN THE INSPECTOR HANAUD SERIES, in which we again join Ricardo and Hanaud, this time in an ambiguous situation. A young, wealthy vagabond English man, Calladine, whom Ricardo knew before, hastily comes to Ricardo's London home in the morning, while Hanaud happens to be visiting. Calladine, very agitated, still dressed formally as for an evening ball, tells his disturbing story-- He had gone to a costume party that night in a hotel ballroom, met a beautiful young woman, Joan Carew, with whom he danced, dined, and talked."She was young, fair, rather tall, slim, and very pretty; her hair was drawn back from her face with a ribbon, and rippled down her shoulders in heavy curls; and she was dressed in a satin coat and knee-breeches of pale green and gold, with a white waistcoat and silk stockings and scarlet heels to her satin shoes. She was as straight-limbed as a boy, and exquisite like a figure in Dresden china."Alfred Edward Woodley Mason (7 May 1865 Dulwich, London - 22 November 1948 London) was a British author and politician, writing under the name A.
