Overview

Philip Lewellan discovers a mysterious painting. He’s sure it’s proof his missing wife is alive … and may be living somewhere with a child, his daughter. The thought of being a father is more than enough to get Philip to turn to the one person who might believe him.

Sandra Copeland, the original detective assigned to the missing-persons case, chased far too many bogus leads, after Philip—against her advice—offered a million dollar reward. Legitimate private investigators quit taking Philip’s money. Nothing could be found, or any evidence to indicate Renée might be alive. Copeland is not about to reopen an inactive seven-year-old missing-persons case based on what could only be another bogus lead. That is, until she sees a photo of the oil painting Philip has found in a New York art gallery. Their investigation unearths a staggering conspiracy impossible to believe, or to ignore.

Not just another missing wife story, this gripping tale mixes elements of mystery, romance, and danger, bringing a thrilling new twist to an old tale of greed and vice.

    First the criticism:
    there were a few spots that had grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. However, I do not believe these took away from the story at all.
    What a wonderful, engaging, fast paced mystery. This book kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see how it would
     all play out. At first there were a lot of characters introduced that seemed to pop up out of nowhere but I am glad I kept
     reading to see how they all figured into the storyline. The characters, especially Phillip and Sandra kept me engaged to
     see where the storyline would lead next.

    An edge of your seat tale, loaded with plenty of nail-biting twists and turns, awaits mystery-loving readers in Portrait of Conspiracy.

    Multi-millionaire Philip Lewellan couldn’t have been more devastated when, after his pregnant wife went missing seven years ago, not even a one million dollar reward could help locate them. But now, after all these years, when an oil painting of a woman who looks just like Renee, and a young girl – the right age to be his daughter - is seen on a brochure, his overwhelming need to try to locate them returns. Desperate, he calls on the one person he trusts the most, Dallas Detective Sandra Copeland. Removed from the case years ago, she - with only proof of a picture and Philip’s confidence that it is all real – will risk her job, and her life, to help him.

    From the very beginning, Philip and Sandra will be shocked by murders, secrets, and lies, even as they hunt down suspects, analyze evidence and grow closer. As a conspiracy unfolds, faith will be tested.

    Author Jim Davis does an outstanding job of leading his characters on this trip of suspense and intrigue to an ending readers will be pleased with. A fast-paced plot, his story builds with each new setting and turn of events perfectly timed and choreographed so that the reader never loses interest, but becomes more engrossed.

    Portrait of Conspiracy by J. M. Davis has all the hallmarks of a good mystery/suspense novel. Recommended for young adults and up.

    Excellent thriller

    I enjoyed this thriller. Some further editing of typos needs to be done, but it was not enough to stop my enjoyment of this ebook. I plan to seek out more by this author!
