Lucia Mann

October 16th, 2023

Lucia Mann’s 9th title, Hidden Behind the Mist of Arrow Lakes: So deep are the sinister secrets that hide in plain sight (Aperion $19.95) is a novel based on real events about individuals with ties to the Nazi era—some born during the war and others after—who adopted new identities in a remote part of BC, cleverly altering one or two letters of their birth or last names. Living inconspicuously, they managed to stay beneath the radar. Mann’s new tale weaves together the intricate web of connections between Russia, England, Germany and Canada that illustrates links to the Holocaust’s history. Within its pages lies a chronicle of atrocities that remained shrouded in secrecy until outed by a courageous woman. Born in British colonial South Africa after World War II, Mann is an activist and author based in BC. After retiring from a career in freelance journalism, Ms. Mann dedicated herself to giving voice to the silenced and oppressed in her novels including her four-book African Freedom Series. 9780985603977
