“WINNER 2023 PENCRAFT AWARDS – LITERARY EXCELLENCE”
Congratulations Nina Romano – Winner of the 2023 Pencraft Awards for Literary Excellence
DARK EYES…Anya, an unwed mother of a mentally challenged child, meets Andrei, at a murder scene. They strive to unravel the murders of a hotel worker and a doll-seller with a link to diamond smuggling in Soviet Leningrad.
The offbeat couple, in jeopardy, are stalked by a vicious detective with possible involvement in the murders, and in a taut reversal, the hunted become the hunters.
“Nina Romano’s latest historical novel, Dark Eyes, is a suspenseful, edgy, intense nail-biter. I couldn’t tear myself away from the story until the end—then I wanted to start over again to concentrate on the rich historical details and luxuriate in her dazzling prose. Another five-star tour de force from a top-notch novelist!”—Cynthia Hamilton, author of Spouse Trap and A High Price to Pay
