told in the first person by tom wasp this is the story of him looking for the person who murdered his friend Bessie, a young woman who has been the model for a group of painters.
. tom decides to find out about her past hoping it will lead to a reason for her death and the person who killed her.
another good story by amy myers with enough history to brings tom's surroundings and investigations to life without it getting in the way of the story.
enjoyed terry wales performance as tom wasp.
shame there are only two books in this series.
