Annamaria Alfieri writes historical murder mysteries that take place against fascinating points of South American history. She is the author of Invisible Country, her second historical mystery. Her City of Silver, also published by Thomas Dunne Books/Minotaur, won critical acclaim. Deadly Pleasures Magazine called it one of the best first novels of the year, and the Washington Post said, “As both history and mystery, City of Silver glitters.” A world traveler, Annamaria takes a keen interest in the history of the places she visits. She lives in New York City.
