At ten, painting a perfect Mona Lisa made Annie Kincaid a prodigy. A similar copy at seventeen made her a crook. Lesson learned: genuine art is priceless, and forgery gets you arrested. Now Annie puts her artistic talents to honest use as a faux finisher in San Francisco. But her past may not be painted over as well as she thought…
Annie’s got bad news for her ex-boyfriend, curator Ernst Pettigrew: the snooty Brock Museum’s new fifteen-million-dollar Caravaggio painting is as fake as a three-dollar bill. And the same night Annie makes her shattering appraisal, the janitor on duty is killed—and Ernst disappears. To top it all off, a well-known art dealer has absconded with multiple Old Master drawings, leaving yet more forgeries in their places. Finding the originals—and pocketing the reward money—will get Annie’s new landlord off her back. But it could also draw her into the underworld of fakes and forgers she swore she’d left behind, starting with a close encounter with a changeable but charming art thief…
