Anna Valmont was part of a team of thieves called the Churchmice who stole an imitation of the Shroud of Turin intending to sell it to the highest bidder. The team included also Gaston LaRouche, found dead near a small airport, and Francisca Garcia, killed by Deirdre Archleone on Etranger.
Anna Valmont has blond hair and a high British accent with a touch of amusement in her voice.
In the seriesEdit
In Death Masks, Harry Dresden gets a tip from Ulsharavas that the Shroud and the thieves are on a ship called Etranger parked in Burnham Harbor. Dresden surveys the ship, then boards it, finding two thieves—Francisca Garcia and Anna Valmont. He nearly gets the Shroud when Valmont gets the drop on him with a gun. Then the ship is attacked by Deirdre Archleone, who kills Garcia and sinks the ship. Dresden saves the Shroud from Deirdre but Valmont escapes with it.
During a Gala for the Chicago Historical & Art Society held at the Marriott Downtown Chicago Hotel, Valmont attempts to hold a covert sale of the Shroud to John Marcone. Harry Dresden, Susan Rodriguez and Martin interrupt the sale and try to get the Shroud. Before they can succeed, they are all attacked by Nicodemus Archleone and two Denarians: Deirdre Archleone and Quintus Cassius. Valmont manages to escape but Dresden and the Shroud are captured by Nicodemus.
She is last mentioned as being at Saint Mary of the Angels.(reference needed)
