A Dangerous Talent Paperback / softback
Part of the An Alix London Mystery series
From the outside, Alix London appears to have it all: a glamorous career as an art consultant, a sumptuous condo in Seattles toniest neighborhood, a gorgeous figure, and a presence that positively exudes Ivy League breeding and old money. Unfortunately for Alix, what you see isnt exactly what you get. A brilliant, once-promising art student, the daughter of a prominent New York art conservator, Alix and her world were left in ruins when her father went to prison for art forgery. Now a Harvard dropout with an emptied bank account, she is languishing in a career that has produced little more than a lucky house-sitting gig.
Then she meets Christine Lemay, a novice art collector with deep pockets and a handle on a recently discovered painting by American master Georgia OKeeffe. Chris needs the painting authenticated, and Alixs career desperately needs the boost that will come from such a high-profile assignment. But when an attempted art theft goes horribly wrong, Alix is plunged into a tangled web of forgery, deceitand murder. Only her connoisseurs eye (and a little unlikely help from her roguish father) can give the FBI the expertise they need to crack the caseassuming the killer doesnt come for her next. Witty and surprising, A Dangerous Talent introduces a clever and enchanting new sleuth to the ranks of American detective fiction.
