Tonight I attended a book launch by Vince Fernandez of his new book, Little Sister, which took place at the Pilot in Yorkville.
I met Vince through fencing and consider him a friend. We both fence sabre and have had many lively bouts. He is an excellent fencer and I think that maybe I have beaten him only twice in tournaments.
Not only is he a really good fencer (Vince, when I come back to the fencing strip, I will be taking you down) but he is a great writer.
Tonight he read from the first chapter of his book and I was hooked.
Mila Mirkin and John Lister want success any way they can get it. For Mila, that means working as an escort to finance grad school. For John, it means getting his hedge fund on track even if he breaks a basic moral tenant: thou shalt not kill. Following the mysterious death of Toronto's top financial prosecutor, Vitaly Mirkin is transferred to the role. His first case is against John Lister. Mila's brother is prosecuting her primary client. As John's ruthless plan unfolds, he pulls Mila ever closer, leaving her in a terrible quandary: tell her brother what she knows and expose her secret life, or pretend innocence and put the lives of others in mortal danger...
The room was full as Vince has a very wide circle of friends. I'm looking forward to reading his book.
Vince ... writing is hard work and I wish you all the best with it and your success.
