Dr. Dulcinea (Dulcie) Chambers is honored to have the esteemed British artist Logan Dumbarton as a guest at the Maine Museum of Art. The abstract expressionist painter has come all the way from London to teach a master class. His students, a group of talented local artists, are initially in awe. However, the eccentric artist is accompanied by an entourage that is proving less than ideal. His stunningly exotic wife Isabel is a constant distraction with her incessant whining, while Linda, Logan’s ever-efficient sister and business manager, does nothing but placate her brother’s whims. To make matters worse, Logan seems to vacillate between annoyingly sniveling and irritatingly egocentric at any given moment.
Within a week the entire class loathes him. Is he really worth all of this trouble? Somebody doesn’t seem to think so, and it’s up to Dulcie to find out who. But she’ll have to team up with Detective Nicholas Black once again, and at the moment their relationship can only be described as fragile.

I look forward to reading more books by this author. Not the usual mystery . A real pleasure.
I'm officially hooked on this series. In this book we find our main character, Dulcie, dealing with an egotistical artist along with his entourage. Not only that, she has a master class of art students to appease as well. As with the other books in the series, the characters are so well developed, interesting and most important, believable. I love the ongoing relationship between Dulcie and Nick also.
