Copperfield’s Books welcomes local author Karin Fitz Sanford to Santa Rosa in celebration of her new book - The Last Thing Claire Wanted: A Wine Country Cold Case, a murder mystery set in Santa Rosa.

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.

This event is free and open to the public. Masks required.

An ex-FBI agent. A dying matriarch. A family secret that keeps killing

Northern California. Anne McCormack has plenty of her own problems-a vile ex-husband, a rocky exit from the FBI, and a struggling new estate-sales business. But when finding a watch leads her to a prominent Wine Country matriarch, she can't say no to the dying woman's plea to solve her young son's decades-old murder. 

Teaming up with her retired-cop uncle, Anne convinces the DA to reopen the cold case and is sworn in as a temp-hire detective. But as she wades through suspects, witnesses, and shocking evidence implicating those closest to the dead child, she fears it's too late for justice. 

Can Anne find a killer who's on the loose and out to take down the rest of the family?

Author: Karin Fitz Sanford, a former advertising copywriter, was born in New York but grew up in Northern California’s Wine Country, the setting for her debut novel, The Last Thing Claire Wanted. Having run her own award-winning ad agency for over twenty-five years, she now devotes herself full time to writing her second mystery in the Wine Country Cold Case series. She lives in Santa Rosa, California, with her husband. For more on Karin Fitz Sanford, visit: https://fitzsanford.com
