THE VISCONTI DEVILS
Dimitra uses her knowledge of the tarot to set both the artistic and historic background of the story. Her imagery is tantalizing as she weaves the backdrops of Yale University's art world and Milan's Carnevale into a fascinating tale of a battle of wills and the strength of true love.
The pair head for Carnevale and to search for the missing Visconti Devils -- cards needed to round out certain tarot decks. Both love and danger await them.
