With her brother and his wife at her side, Lily faces

the eight valuable paintings she inherited from her
grandmother, an internationally acclaimed artist. When she
shows the pictures to art broker Simon Russo, Lily learns
four are forgeries. Simon and Lily travel to Hemlock Bay

sparks fly between Simon and Lily.
Catherine Coulter has written another superb
contemporary suspense novel with just enough romance to
make both genres quite pleased with the tale. Savich and
Sherlock play critical and prominent roles, but the
spotlight shines on Lily and Simon, two strong minded
individuals teaming up to insure justice is served. The
complex story line moves forward rather quickly as Ms.
Coulter has outdone even her usual high quality work with
this sure shot best seller.
