Overview

Southern California, 1970s. Lew Archer has been hired to retrieve a stolen canvas reputed to be the work of the celebrated Richard Chantry, who vanished in 1950 from his home. It is the portrait of an unknown woman. Suddenly, Lew finds himself drawn into a web of family complications and masked brutalities stretching back fifty years, through a world where money talks or buys silence, where social prominence is a murderous weapon, where a heritage of lies and evasions pushes troubled men and women deeper into trouble. And as he pursues the case, Archer himself is shaken as never before.
