St. Martin's Press Minotaur
Featuring: Sweeney St. George; Tim Quinn
Add to Wish List
Art history professor Sweeney St. George is in the middle
of putting together an exhibit on her specialty, “the art
of death,” for the university museum when she makes an
unusual discovery: A valuable piece of Egyptian funerary
jewelry that should be in the museum’s collection seems to
be missing. Searching for answers, Sweeney learns that a
student intern at the museum was the last person to check
out the piece, a young woman who died of an apparent
suicide soon after she handled the piece, more than twenty-
five years ago.
Going on with the exhibition without the intricately
beaded Egyptian collar, Sweeney can’t let it drop
altogether. Nor can she forget the student, Karen Philips,
who died just a few months after working with the piece. A
little digging shows that Karen was working at the museum
the night it was robbed, that same year, and Sweeney
becomes even more curious. But her interest in mysteries
past pales when a present-day murder brings Sweeney and
her colleagues at the museum under the Cambridge Police
Department spotlight in the person of Detective Tim Quinn,
whom Sweeney has worked with before.
In the latest installment in this rich and fascinating
series, Sweeney and Tim go after a killer, trying to
resolve questions both immediate and decades-old before
it’s too late.
