Summary
Ousted as editor of the "Review of Applied Ethics", Isabel thankfully has ner newborn son to keep her occupied. What's more, Charlie's adoring father Jamie has offered the most intriguing proposal of all--marriage. But before she can settle into a quiet, domestic existence, Isabel becomes entangled in an art world mystery. At an auction, two paintings attributed to a deceased artist hit the market at the same time, and both paintings have unusual elements--such as the appearance of a person the painter could only have known after his supposed date of death. Could the works be forgeries? Or for that matter, might the artist still be alive?
