Publisher's Summary

While painting on location in one of the family's fields, Jessie absentmindedly brushes a note of turquoise onto the canvas. Curious about what added the lovely spot of color, the artist walks over to discover a shoe. The mate is still on the foot of a dying Native American girl crammed between the hay bales.
She whispers to Jessie that her attacker was a cop.
The story becomes more personal when an old flame, Sheriff Russell Bonham, reveals that Amber Reynolds was attacked while on her way to speak to Jessie's family about two missing Thomas Moran masterpieces worth millions. The paintings disappeared nearly 100 years ago from St. Benedict's Mission School. Right after the unsolved murder of Jessie's great aunt Kate.
Jessie teams up with Arvid Abrahmsen, a huge Norwegian cop, and FBI art theft agent, Grant Kennedy, to search for the lost artwork and solve the murders, both the past and the present.

Great story, Great narration!

I enjoyed every minute of this audio book, and am amazed that it is the author's debut novel. She writes wonderfully, with full, rich characters, and a compelling mystery that makes one keep guessing, "Who done it?!". As an artist myself, I especially enjoyed the references to art and painting, and her colorful, and often humorous descriptions of the scenes and characters.

The narrator did a fantastic job, and enriched the story and experience. She was perfect!

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with likable, true to life characters, that keeps you guessing until the end. I'll miss those folks, and can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
