Death and White Diamonds takes place in the fictional Casteleton Bay Region. As the story opens, Richie discovers his girlfriend Lorraine dead on the beach, on the bay side of Port Salmon. From the moment I first saw the art for the front cover, I have been amazed by how perfectly the graphic artist at Intrigue Publishing captured the setting. Because it is fictional, but it is based on a very real place.
Here is the narrow strip of sand, between water’s edge and dune grass, where Richie found the dead body.
If you happen to be in or near NYC, I hope you’ll help me celebrate when Death and White Diamonds launches this Friday evening at The Mysterious Bookshop.
