Question of Preference (A Teal Stewart Mystery)

Overview

Rich, celebrated, Nancy Vandenberg has been touted as the Norman Rockwell of the '90s. But the threatening notes in her mail are anything but quaint. And when Nancy dies suddenly in Cape Cod, the facts, figures, and rumors of adultery make a hit-and-run accident look a lot more like murder.

In a furious race against time, Teal tracks her old friend's killer from a Boston gallery to a Baja tourist shop, from Cape Cod to California, where a volatile mix of friendship, sex and love...

Overview

Rich, celebrated, Nancy Vandenberg has been touted as the Norman Rockwell of the '90s. But the threatening notes in her mail are anything but quaint. And when Nancy dies suddenly in Cape Cod, the facts, figures, and rumors of adultery make a hit-and-run accident look a lot more like murder.

In a furious race against time, Teal tracks her old friend's killer from a Boston gallery to a Baja tourist shop, from Cape Cod to California, where a volatile mix of friendship, sex and love could turn Teal's rejuvenating spa vacation into a setting for sudden death.

When celebrated artist Nancy Vandenberg dies suddenly on Cape Cod, the facts, figures, and rumors of adultery make a hit-and-run accident look a lot more like a homicide. Now, savvy CPA Teal Stewart is on the case, willing to risk far more than her career in this fast-moving tale of financial finagling and murder.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Lamb's heroine Teal Stewart makes a strong move to hardcover with her second appearance (after Questionable Behavior). Teal, a CPA called ``a financial Sherlock Holmes'' by the local Boston Globe, is vying for partnership in her accounting firm when her best friend asks for help. Nancy Vanderburg-tall, blonde and America's foremost living painter of family and societal conventions-has been receiving ominous threats, e.g., the words ``punishment follows Adultery death follows perversion'' scrawled across an article about her in a glossy magazine. Then Nancy is killed by a car when out jogging with her estranged husband, publicist Michael Britton. Assorted suspects are found in the tangled skein of Nancy's life: Michael, a former Golden Gloves contender and reader of mercenary magazines; Carole, Nancy's sister and agent; Felicia Barrette, gallery owner and Nancy's career-long champion and also Michael's lover; and Nancy's new lover, whose identity she did not disclose to Teal. The three-dimensional supporting cast, including an overeating criminal attorney and a retirement-age hit man, and the sensually depicted Massachusetts and Baja California backdrops add to the pleasures of this absorbing page-turner.
