Come to Light

Three volumes of secrets, deceit, murder, and above all, a pursuit of whisky, art and books.

In Come to Light, Paul Madonna has taken No Reservations, The Goldfinch, and the classic detective novel, thrown them into a blender, and whipped up an addictive and memorable cocktail of a book.

Come to Light is three volumes of secrets, deceit, murder, and above all, a pursuit of whisky, art and books. Paul Madonna has taken No Reservations, The Goldfinch, and the classic detective novel, thrown them into a blender, and whipped up an addictive and memorable cocktail of a book.

A quick-paced fiction murder mystery (Elmore Leonard style) full of memorable, eccentric characters.

Not a graphic novel, rather an illustrated novel, with a museum quality package that is a portable and collectible keepsake.

Of interest and the perfect gift for fans of: art; lit; noir; detective fiction; travel fiction; and mysteries.

Author is very popular and has a devoted fan base who will be supportive of this new work. Paul's distinctive art can be seen on packaging and promos for popular brands like Tacolicious and Anchor Steam.

Each volume works independently, and each volume’s art helps to tell the story and plunges the reader into the story in real time. The first volume’s art is sketches, the second’s is sketches of another artist’s sculptures, and the third’s art is finished drawings from the first volume, tying the stories together.

Includes scenes in Lisbon, Barcelona, Rome, Venice, the South of France, and Amsterdam. Images unfold as we watch them being made—a new and interesting approach to the illustrated novel.

Part of a growing series and a fictional “world” that will include serialization and numerous spinoff storylines.

True historical events, as told to the author/artist, were woven into the story. These include: a landowner smuggling Jewish people out under the nose of the Germans, and of the landowner who was killed by locals for informing on him, and a story of the last days of Saigon, of the underground railroad to get south Vietnamese civilians visas into the states, as well as Ambassador Martin's being thrown onto a transport because he wouldn't leave.
