In the merciless microcosm of Paris art auctions and galleries, some people collect art, while others collect trouble. Marion Spicer spends her days examining auction catalogues and searching for stolen works of art. She is a top-notch investigator when it comes to eighteenth-century art. But for her it's just a job and her life is well ordered. All this changes when she inherits a huge and very prestigious collection of pre-Columbian art from a father she never knew. There are conditions attached: she must first find three priceless statues. That is when her troubles begin. Her father’s death sparked much greed, and Marion finds herself facing sharks, schemes, fences, traps, scams, and attacks. Her quest draws her into a world where people will kill for a love of beauty.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 02, 2015 – Thi blemont's captivating mystery, the first in a series featuring intrepid Parisian art appraiser Marion Spicer, provides delightful peeks into Parisian apartments and galleries as well as glimpses of the murky world of art auctions and the often obsessive needs of collectors. Marion's ordered and self-contained life changes when she's offered a fabulous inheritance which includes a priceless collection of pre-Columbian artifacts from her long-lost father, Edmond Magni. But there's a catch: in order to inherit, she must track down three emerald-encrusted statues. When the people she interviews in her search start turning up murdered and mutilated, she calls on Chris, who works in a laboratory authenticating antiques, and Didier Combes, an old-school art theft detective, for help. As Marion unravels the mystery of the statues she also uncovers the truth about the father who abandoned her. Readers will hope the author's second novel, La Mouche d'Alexandrie, will soon appear in translation.
