Theft By Chocolate – A ROM Mystery

Author indulging in the food of the gods...chocolate!

Theft By Chocolate is a cheeky museum heist mystery inspired by Luba Lesychyn’s experiences at Canada’s largest museum and by a real-life and never-solved heist at the Royal Ontario Museum in the 1980s that rocked the security industry globally. The taut page-turner is a fictional imagining, weaving the historical event into a 21st-century setting and into the hilarious escapades of a fumbling, chocolate-addicted amateur sleuth and reluctant cougar.

Join Luba for a reading and a discussion on her experience working at the ROM and how this experience became her research base for her first novel.
