Danie O'Rourke is a wonderful addition to the roster of modern day amateur sleuths. Guided by Shea's razor-sharp talent for observation and keen wit, Dani shows us the world of mega million dollar museum donations as only an insider could do... a fascinating protagonist you'd like as a friend, smack dab in the not-so-pristine world of fine art and old money. --Louise Ure, Shamus Award winner
She writes convincingly about art and those who collect it. A series to watch. - Booklist --Booklist
MURDER IN THE ABSTRACT is a comfortable read... The narrative is well constructed, and the plot was a study in art -- painting it, copying it, stealing it, and killing for it. --Betty Cox, Fresh Fiction
