PAINTED LADIES was a New York Time bestseller. Called upon by The
Hammond Museum and renowned art scholar Dr. Ashton Prince, Spenser
accepts his latest case: to provide protection during a ransom
exchange-money for a stolen painting. The case becomes personal
when Spenser fails to protect his client and the valuable painting
remains stolen. Convinced that Ashton Prince played a bigger role
than just ransom delivery boy, Spenser enters into a daring game of
cat-and-mouse with the thieves. But this is a game he might not
come out of alive...
Spenser had a simple job-protect an art scholar during a ransom
exchange for a stolen painting. No one was supposed to die. But the
scholar had secrets no one knew, and uncovering them will endanger
Spenser as well.
