Book Launch: Death, Unchartered by Dorothy Van Soest
Come join us to celebrate the Austin book launch of Death, Unchartered by Dorothy Van Soest!
Death, Unchartered is Dorothy Van Soest’s second Sylvia Jensen mystery. The story revolves around the discovery of a child’s bones during the excavation of the site for a new charter school in the Bronx. When news of the discovery reaches former teacher Sylvia, she is certain of two things, that the remains are those of eight-year-old Markus LeMeur, her third-grade student who disappeared in the violent and tumultuous fall of 1968, and that his death is no accident.
Determined to find out who killed Markus and why, Sylvia again joins forces with investigative reporter J. B. Harrell and together they delve into the strikes and political protests of the late 1960s and corporate greed of the present. As Sylvia fights to make peace with her own past, she realizes that she missed her chance to save Markus, and she becomes driven to find his killer before he can kill again.
Dorothy Van Soest, MSW, Ph.D, is also the author of two other novels: Just Mercy (2014) and the first about Sylvia Jensen, At the Center (2015).
