How do fabulously rich New Yorkers deal with their family skeletons, particularly when they prove to be not just alive and kicking but also painting acres of extraordinary pictures that sell for millions of dollars? And when it turns out that some of the artist's cherubic subjects were raped and murdered 40 years earlier, the price rockets. It is a clever, ingenious mystery that keeps you guessing to the end. Lorelei King's velvet voice could make Exchange & Mart a bestseller. But here she's only the cherry on top of an unusually rich and deeply satisfying cake.
