The jetlag hasn’t even subsided for newly engaged FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan when they have a new murder to investigate. It is seemingly connected to their ongoing investigation of a decade-old art crime spree that spans an ocean and involves both their FBI division and Sharpe Fine Art Recovery, Emma’s family business. The deeper they dig, the more complications arise and the wider the crime net becomes. Suddenly, the lines between friends and suspects narrow and agents working both stateside and abroad rush to find the culprit before another crime is committed. (MIRA, Sep., 352 pp., $25.95)
