Joanna Stark thought she had finally left her troubled past behind: After the death of her husband, she quit the San Francisco art security firm where she was a partner and retreated to the small California wine country town of Sonoma. But unexpectedly, in one rainy week before Thanksgiving, her carefully constructed world collapses. A Frans Hals painting, The Cavalier in White, is stolen from the M.H. de Young Museum, and the strange circumstances surrounding its disappearance prompt her former business partner to ask her to return to the city and investigate the theft. Joanna knows she must go back—as much for her own protection as for the sake of the museum. Her investigation takes her from the hushed corridors of the de Young to a seedy waterfront tavern; from a Seacliff mansion to a vandalized shack on the shores of the Bay; to galleries, museum openings—and the scene of a murder. By the time she confronts the killer, the careful order of her life is nearly destroyed and she finds that the past is not only inescapable, but also more complex and frightening than she had previously imagined.

About the Author:

NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR MARCIA MULLER has written many novels and short stories. Her novel Wolf in the Shadows won the Anthony Boucher Award. The recipient of the Private Eye Writers of America's Lifetime Achievement Award and the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master Award—their highest accolade—she lives in northern California with her husband, mystery writer Bill Pronzini.

From Publishers Weekly:

When Joanna Stark learns that a tall stranger has been attempting to locate her, she tries to remain calm. But even three years after her retirement as a security consultant to California museums and galleries, her suspicions are automatically aroused. The man turns out to be her former partner Nick, who persuades Joanna, against her better judgment, to help him find a stolen Franz Hals painting, The Cavalier in White. All too soon, Joanna realizes that the case is more complex and frightening than it originally appeared. Before it is resolved, she is forced to confront her old nemesis, Parducci, as well as dramatic secrets in her personal life. Muller's introduction to her new detective is laden with expository passages that slow the development of the mystery. Still, the intricate story builds to a satisfying climax with enough left unresolved to promise more adventures in the future.
