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.
