For fans of Lucy Foley and Liane Moriarty, a twisty, escapist suspense about a mysterious retreat center harboring violent secrets.

A Cappella Books welcomes Atlanta author Katherine St. John to celebrate the release of her new book, “The Vicious Circle.” 

This event is free and open to the public, and copies of the book will be available for purchase.

About the Book

On a river deep in the Mexican wilderness stands the colossal villa Xanadu, a wellness center that’s home to an ardent spiritual group devoted to self-help guru Paul Bentzen and his enigmatic wife Kali. But when Paul mysteriously dies, his entire estate—including Xanadu—is left not to the obvious heir-apparent, his wife, but to his estranged niece, Sveta.

Shocked and confused, Sveta travels from New York City to Mexico to pay her respects and sift through her uncle’s final directives, with his attorney Lucas Baranquilla in tow (with whom she has a complicated romantic past). At first, Xanadu seems like a secluded paradise with its tumbling gardens, attractive residents, and transcendent vibe. But soon the mystical façade wears thin, revealing a group of brainwashed members guided by a disturbing belief system and a charismatic, dangerously capable leader.
