DANTE ALIGHIERi SOCIETY 41 Hampshire St., Cambridge, MA AUTHOR ANGELA GERST - Fri- day, September 16, 2011 at 7:00 pm. Politics, money, love . . . what could go wrong? A Crack in Everything, a debut mystery novel by Angela Gerst. Praised by critics and authors across the literary spectrum, A Crack in Ev- erything tells a sizzling tale of politics, passion, greed and murder. The novel introduces Susan Callisto, a some- time real estate lawyer turned politi- cal consultant with a busy practice and a lonely private life. Susan and her oldest client, Nino Biondi, share Italian roots, but little else. Nino likes to sue. Susan prefers to negotiate. Nino loves to cook -- he's the chef- owner of Tavola Rustica. Susan pre- fers tuna casserole to osso buco. Nino ignores Susan's advice, but her can- didates hang on her every word, pay- ing her well -- too well in the case of a magnetic newcomer with deep pock- ets and a dubious agenda. Then Nino is beaten and left for dead in an alley, perhaps by the landlord he is battling for control of Tavola Rustica. When one of Susan's political clients is mur- dered and then Susan herself at- tacked, she begins to suspect that her political consultancy has become a springboard to violence and murder. An old love, Detective Lt. Michael Benedict, leads the investigation, and when Susan elbows in, she finds a crack in everything.
