Oh what people do for a work of art. They steal, they connive, and they even commit murder.
While in the hands of Edwin who was restoring a famous painting, Madame de Pompadour by Francois Boucher, was stolen and Edwin was murdered.
We follow Anabele, Edwin's sister, and Mr. Hallam the investigator as they track down clues and the reason the painting may have been stolen.
What they find is quite a bit of information about the selling and trading of paintings and the people who participate in these trades. Some folks are definitely not on the up and up and come from all walks of life.
Will they find the painting and the murderer?
Ms. Odden will have you mesmerized by the workings of the art world and what goes on in auction houses.
Her characters are authentic, and her writing keeps your interest.
There is plenty of tension and good sleuthing along with a bit of romance. 4/5
