Look for it in stores June 24, 2010
Danielle O’Rourke’s gala evening at the Devor Museum ends in catastrophe when the body of a young artist plummets from her office window. The police label it murder and suspect Dani, the Museum’s chief fund raiser. Self-preservation and an insider’s understanding of how money moves the art world drive her to investigate who might have a motive for murder. Dani’s playboy ex-husband and a green-eyed cop complicate matters as her search moves through the fashionable worlds of San Francisco and Santa Fe.
Shamus Award winner Louise Ure said: "Dani O’Rourke is a wonderful addition to the roster of modern day amateur sleuths. Guided by Shea’s razor-sharp talent for observation and keen wit, Dani shows us the world of mega million dollar museum donations as only an insider could do… a fascinating protagonist you’d like as a friend, smack dab in the not-so-pristine world of fine art and old money.”
