A voracious reader as a child, local author Carl Vonderau’s search for exciting tales eventually led him to ghost stories that would scare the pants off of most other elementary school kids. In turn, these stories inspired his debut novel, Murderabilia, which also drew from his Christian Science background and his time as a banker. “[Carl] is a terrific writer who has written a terrific book." (Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Daughter) William MacNary has worked hard to build a normal life: a home, a family, and a job as a private banker. Try as he might, however, he will never forget how his father murdered, dismembered, and photographed thirteen women. When a colleague of his wife is found murdered exactly like his father’s victims, all signs point to William. Only one person can shed light on who the copycat be, the only man William never wants to see again; his father.
In conversation with Carl will be Catherine “Kate” Kowalewski, Director at Brinig Taylor Zimmer, where she is an expert in financial and economic damages analysis, fraud investigations, and litigation support.
