"This is a fast moving story set against a novel and unusual background."
Set in New York's art community this is about a series of murders mimicking famous paintings - using the victims as tableaux. Caught up in this is ex NYPD cop Kate McKinnon who is devastated by the discovery of the body of her protégé.
Kate has moved on in life and is now a well-known art historian who is married to a wealthy lawyer and patron of the arts. Her knowledge of art history and her closeness to some of the victims gradually reveal that Kate is intrinsically important to the murderer and soon she is drawn back to taking an active part in the hunt for the killer.
