Book Launch: Cutter Wood presents Love and Death in the Sunshine State: The Story of a Crime
In conversation with Jen Percy
Wine reception to follow
Debut author Cutter Wood presents a provocative story of love and murder – and a searing blend of the documentary and the literary, in the vein of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood. When a stolen car is recovered on the Gulf Coast of Florida, it sets off a search for a missing women and owner of a motel on Anna Maria Island. With the days passing quickly, her motel is set on fire, her boyfriend flees the county, and detectives begin digging on the beach. Cutter Wood – a guest at the motel in the midst of the search -- is drawn steadily deeper into the case. As his personal investigation advances – an investigation that soon goes well beyond mere facts – he finds himself driven to understand the intimate details of a relationship and how they could lead to murder. Wood presents his book in conversation with journalist Jen Percy, followed by a reception to celebrate the book's launch.
