A Trace of Deceit
Recently released from prison, Edwin swore he'd reformed and wanted to repair his broken relationship with her. Annabel wants desperately to believe him--but when she discovers that a priceless French painting is missing from his studio, she wonders if he had lied to her yet again, or if--despite Edwin's best efforts--his old life had come back to haunt him.
Determined to know the truth, Annabel convinces Matthew that as a painter at the prestigious Slade School of Art and Edwin’s only family, she is crucial to his investigation. Together they trace a path of deceit and villainy that reaches far beyond the elegant rooms of the auction house, into an underworld of treachery, heartbreak, and secrets someone will kill to keep.
