This week's recipient is the perfect Labor Day weekend read for all those heading out next week.  Joanna Crispi's psychological thriller The Guilty Ones stems from an unusual premise: just out of law school, the author worked on the defense team for socialite Claus von Bulow, accused of trying to murder his wife by insulin, putting her in an irreversible coma.  The trial inspired The Guilty Ones, in which a former defense attorney, Juliet, abandons her career for Francois, a wealthy Parisian banker, and Mike, a criminal prosecutor.  While in Rome, the three find themselves in a situation they cannot control, with implications of murder and terrorism.  "Each holds a card to play in this game where the stakes are love and hate, life and death," writes the author.

Joanna is a lawyer and writer who lives in New York City and Milan.  Check her out on Vook and Facebook.
