Portland Police Detective Nicholas Black has cause for concern. He’s investigating the suspicious death of a young woman whose body has just washed on shore in full scuba gear. Normally it would simply be a case of drowning, yet along with this particular body is a stolen Vincent van Gogh painting in a watertight tube. To further complicate matters, the phone number of Dr. Dulcinea ("Dulcie") Chambers is written on the dead woman’s hand. As the new director of the Maine Museum of Art, Dulcie is already busy negotiating the sale of one of the museum’s pieces with a wealthy collector. When Dulcie learns that she’s a chief suspect however, she has no choice but to help with the investigation. Dulcie finds herself diving in to solve this mystery as her relationship with Detective Nicholas Black also reaches new depths.

I highly recommend this for those who like mysteries . A really good reasd .
I immediately began reading this after finishing the first in the series, PORTRAIT OF A MURDER. I love the way the author gets into the heads of the characters so that we know exactly what they're thinking. I also loved how this book took the reader form Maine to Boston, showing that the cities are connected. But best of all, I couldn't believe the ending and, like with the first book, I'm now reading the next one in the series!
