Synopsis

Synopsis

"POWERFUL . . . FASCINATING . . . Truman absolutely amazes."
--Atlanta Journal & Constitution

When the senior curator at Washington's famed National Gallery finds a missing painting by the Renaissance master Caravaggio, he mounts a world-class exhibition--and plots a brilliant forgery scheme that will stun the art world.

"A THRILLING CHASE."
--Publishers Weekly

But an artful deception suddenly becomes a portrait of blackmail and murder--as gallery owner and part-time sleuth Annabel Reed-Smith and her husband go searching for clues in the heady arena of international art and uncover a rare collection of unscrupulous characters that leads all the way to Italy.

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED . . . One of [Margaret] Truman's best."
--Booklist

She was the author of many nonfiction books, including The President’s House, in which she shares some of the secrets and history of the White House where she once resided. She lived in Manhattan and passed away in 2008.
