Pasta, Passion & Pistols: at La Speranza, New York City's most popular Italian eatery, restaurateur Pepi Roni has been shot in the back with his own pistol. Tonight, his family and friends will gather to pay their respects to poor Pepi, but one of the guests won't be shedding any tears. Murder Mystery dinner was great fun. Laine is an utterly fabulous pasta cook and hostess.  Here is a picture of our Laine and her husband Brian.  Find more in the 2019 file in our gallery. The game was a hoot.




The third annual Bookfest was a smash hit on September 21, 2019

Book lovers of all ages celebrated St. Louis’ literary heritage at the third annual BookFest St. Louis, presented Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019, by the Central West End Community Improvement District, Left Bank Books, and the Left Bank Books Foundation. Of course, Sisters in Crime was there winning friends and selling books. 

How cool is this? Gorgeous KSDK reporter P.J. Randhawa dropped by the Sisters in Crime tent for a chat and to buy a copy of Jack the Ripper in St. Louis--and to have her picture taken with Fedora.
