Publisher's Summary

Chicago filmmaker Ellie Foreman is back, and she's tackling her most dangerous case yet in this dark amateur sleuth thriller from critically acclaimed crime writer Libby Fischer Hellmann.
An Image of Death sees Ellie in the midst of producing another video documentary, financed by a successful Chicago real estate developer. But things take an unexpected turn one winter night when a mysterious package arrives anonymously on Ellie's doorstep. Inside, she finds a surveillance video apparently showing the murder of a young woman. Who was the victim, why was she murdered, and what is her connection to Ellie?
Despite being pushed to one side by the cops, Ellie begins to uncover the victim's dark history, forged in Eastern Europe at the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Her search for answers takes her into the murky world of money laundering and diamond dealing, ultimately ending up at a deserted construction site in the hands of people who believe she knows too much....
Ellie's latest outing as an amateur sleuth comes hot on the heels of Libby Fischer Hellmann's 2002 Anthony-nominated thriller An Eye for Murder and the 2003 Picture of Guilt. Packed with memorable characters, and neatly tying together a number of gripping plotlines, An Image of Death has been praised by mystery fiction fans as insightful, compelling and entertaining.

Mystery At It's Best

I was given this book in return for an honest review. I love mysteries, this book is not exception. A woman is murdered and Ellie, a videographer and mother, gets a video of it in the mail. She hesitantly takes it to the police even though she doesn't trust police. Why was this sent to her?? That's what the police want to know and so does Ellie. Since Ellie has a history of getting involved in things that she shouldn't, she is warned by the police to stay out of it. She of course doesn't listen, and this the book unfolds. This is not just a mystery, it has back stories, and side stories that involve her adopted husbands thirst for knowledge of his family among other things. This book has murder,mystery, intrigue, deception and wonderful characters that you will be rooting for. A must read for mystery lovers.

Nan McNamara was very good with the delivery of the story.

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Good but boring

Well written, realistic murder mystery. The narrator was very good, well paced, good characterizing and tone variations.
Why is it not my type of book: no humor, no real excitement or action. I found it boring, predictable and drawn out.
If you prefer a realistic murder mystery with out humor or action, this is for you.
