Now in paperbackâ€”the national bestselling series
continues with Helen Hawthorne going undercover in a library
to solve a murder and recover a painting.
Wealthy socialite Elizabeth Cateman Kingsley has hired Helen
to find a missing John Singer Sargent painting, owned by her
late father. After his death, many of Davis Kingsleyâ€™s books
were donated to the Flora Park Library, and his daughter
suspects the small watercolorâ€”worth a million dollarsâ€”was
tucked away inside one of those dusty tomes.
Helen applies for a job as a library volunteer and discovers
the library has a catalog of complaintsâ€”from a mischievous
calico cat to the mysterious disappearance of various items
that some are attributing to a ghost. Soon a dead body turns
up in a parking lot. Now Helen must find the killer as well
as the paintingâ€”before sheâ€™s taken out of circulation herself.
