ASSASSIN IN MONTE CARLO, MONACO by Thomas Donahue, Karen Donahue

Karen Donahue and Tom Donahue again lead readers along the Italian Riviera into a labyrinth of mystery and suspense with their latest novel, Cliffs of Monaco.

An American billionaire's face pales while he reads the card handed to him by a stranger–it is an announcement of his own death sentence. In a world of powerful billionaires who bend the rules to their advantage, the Equal Justice League's mission is to root out the worst of these corrupt individuals, try them in absentia, and sentence them to death. Billionaires are sentenced and executed in Paris, Florence, London, Moscow, and Portofino.

Criminology professor, Marin Ryan, and computer expert, John Hunter, are enjoying the sun, serenity, and a fast Ferrari on the Mediterranean coast. A friend from the CIA asks them to decipher the League's website that has appeared briefly after each of the previous murders. This apparently benign involvement in the case puts the couple at serious risk. While readers escape into the world of palatial villas and penthouses, luxurious yachts, and exotic cars, the couple attempts to escape the ruthless killers.

About the Author

Karen Donahue, a criminology professor at a university in Southern California, has written extensively onboard their boat in Newport Beach. Her love of the sea took her to the University of California in Santa Barbara, where she received her doctorate. As an international law expert in white collar crime, she has lectured and studied in France, England, Germany, West Africa, Switzerland, Ireland, and Italy. She recently completed fieldwork involving historical Law of the Sea documents as a visiting researcher at the United Nations in Geneva.

Thomas Donahue, through his roles as an analyst, consultant, and manager for an international corporation, has traveled extensively. Over the years, he has been involved in projects that took him to locations as diverse as deepwater oceanographic research ships, prisons, steel foundries, and power generating facilities, including nuclear. Those experiences, along with his love for the sea (boater, diver, and former surfer), inform his writing.
