Laura Magee is spending the summer in an art gallery in the southern New Jersey shore town of Safe Harbor. Problems arise for Laura when a dispute over a painting by a man named Rafferty leads to the murder of one of her customers. In danger from the murderers herself‚ Laura must discover the identity of the killers and what makes a Rafferty valuable enough to commit murder. When the FBI becomes involved‚ Laura quickly realizes that this crime has more layers than she ever imagined.
This is a fast-paced mystery with a strong sense of humor‚ particularly with regard to contemporary art. At the climax of the story‚ it will come as a surprise to discover who some of the characters really are. You may never look at an art gallery the same way again.
