Deadly sins, greed and envy, stir up a toxic potion in the second noir mystery in the Boston Publishing House Mystery Series. The museum heist of a priceless Renoir, ripped from the pages of its forthcoming blockbuster, lands Harpoon Books on the front page of The Boston Globe once again in this life-imitates-art whodunit. The heist's mastermind leaves behind two tantalizing clues: A dead thief sprawled on the marble floor in the museum's magnificent rotunda. And a page ripped from an advance copy of Harpoon's forthcoming bestseller tacked to the wall where the stolen painting had hung that describes the theft of the very Renoir. Worried her former boyfriend, a mystery writer, engineered the heist and the thief's murder to promote his new book, Harpoon Publicity Director Frances Paige finds herself enmeshed in the plot while searching for the stolen masterpiece. On the scene, but powerless to prevent another shocking murder, Frances goes rogue to track down the plot's mastermind.
