A Cloud of Fraud by Linda Ferreri

Perhaps the suspicion of fraud enhances the flavor. C. S. Forester

An Italian Renaissance painting by Carlo Crivelli. Where is it? The story begins with a bitter family lawsuit in a courtroom in Philadelphia, but soon turns to a brave search by Claire Bliss for the missing masterpiece, a search that takes her through the lush hills of Le Marche in Italy.

The novel is a brilliant thriller that captures the reader immediately and won’t let go.

As C. S. Forester said, “Perhaps the suspicion of fraud enhances the flavor.” A cloud of fraud envelops the story.
