Summary

New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Lowell creates another masterpiece of excitement and chills, passion and surprise.

When Lacey Quinn inherits the striking landscapes done by her late, much-loved grandfather, she believes they are as good as anything hanging in museums. But the paintings now in her possession are more than the works of a talented master. They are anguished voices from the grave...crying murder!

Lacey begins researching her grandfather's past - and is rocked almost immediately by a strange series of violent events. Someone wants to steal her inheritance, to reduce the paintings to unrecognizable ashes in a suspicious blaze. Someone wants to prevent Lacey from examining her grandfather's work too closely...by any means necessary.

Ian Lapstrake, a security specialist, has taken an interest in Lacey's inheritance...and in her. Troubled by what he sees, he becomes Lacey's shadow as her search for answers leads them both down an ever-darkening road paved with lies, blood, and devastating secrets.

Ok but not A+

Took a bit to follow that this is a story attached to previous books. It was very slow in some parts. So slow that I easily fell asleep on that section. The end about the grandfather was predicable so glad there were a few other twists in the plot. I'll try to listen to it again to see if I stay awake for the middle of the book and to find out if anything exciting happened there.

Read the book instead...

I’ve enjoyed many of Elizabeth Lowell’s books, including this one, multiple times. I couldn’t get through this with the narrator,however. She was technically very good, grammatically correct. But her involvement in what she was reading was about a 3 out of 10. No intensity at all. She could have been describing fashion at Wimbledon or hats at the Kentucky Derby. I couldn’t get involved in the story, and finally gave up a few hours into it.
