Acqua Sacra by Keith Henderson


Everything seems broken in Suzanna Ricci’s life. Only 42, her marriage to Len has disintegrated. Now her mother, “that martial soul,” wants her to restore the family home in Acqua Sacra, damaged by earthquake. And she doesn’t care how many trips from Montreal to their vivid Italian patria of Abruzzo her daughter has to make. At least when Len, a dodgy accountant, encourages her to take a job with a Montreal law firm headed by a man named Robert Bliss, Suzanna feels hopeful of being freer of her ex. Until she realizes the crazy cost of disentangling herself, and not just from him or his “associates.” What is Suzanna to do when the mob and their extralegal cross-border political shenanigans invade her life? A brisk new novel about private deception and public corruption, featuring an honest architect, a gutsy office clerk, the modern-day witch of a drained lake, and at least one (reformed) dirt-digging lawyer.
