Product Description

Product Description

Private Investigator Genevieve Delacourt is hired to find a missing sibling, but the search is complicated by two things: the woman supposedly committed suicide twenty years before, and she was the only suspect in a stranger's murder before she disappeared. Client Sophie Keene revives the case when an unsigned painting turns up that depicts her sister in unmistakable detail. In need of help, Gen turns to one-time romantic interest SFPD Detective Mackenzie Hackett and his insider access to the cold case file. As Gen unravels the mystery the threads of her complicated romantic life fray out of control, and she is forced to confront her feelings about Mack and their unresolved past.

What readers are saying:
"This is a series I seriously could not put down ... Gen Delacourt is, so far, my favorite. I love her snarky attitude, her realism, and the way she looks at the world. If you like mysteries with some humor thrown in, as well as truly not knowing who the culprit is until the end, this is the series for you! I've just started the 4thbook and although I really do have to get some sleep, tomorrow I will be glued once again to the book, until the end!"
"Thoroughly enjoyable. PI Gen Delacourt is at it again. It seems she has only one speed; and that's wide open. And she doesn't know what fear is ... This is a story about artists and convoluted family relationships; It's about how the past is so often still part of our present no matter how long ago it may have been."
"Whoooo Wheeeeeeeeeeee! Great author - great book! Well done, Ms. Greene!"
"I enjoyed this book very much. The story was interesting with enough twists and turns to keep you turning pages.It is very well written. The characters are believable as real people."

HASH(0x9a2f6330) out of 5 stars The best book in an exciting mystery series! May 10 2014
By MariaM - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Genevieve Delacourt's private detective cases veer from missing pets to misbehaving husbands, so when a mysterious woman knocks on her door asking her to rekindle a cold case, Gen agrees. Sophie Keene was given a painting depicting a woman who bears an uncanny resemblance to her missing sister, Shannon. The catch? Shannon has been missing for twenty years and the painting is unsigned. With Oliver, her cross-dressing, ever supporting friend as her sidekick, Gen hits the road seeking answers to simple questions which, however, make key players squirm. Although she feels danger looming, she presses on. After all, it's easier to get to the bottom of a life-threatening case than look at the bottom of her heart and let Detective Mack Hackett know where they really stand.

I read and rated Rapunzel - Gen Delacourt Mystery #2 with five stars. Now what am I supposed to do with this book? This one is even better! Molly Greene generously offers insight into her heroine's psyche who we see growing both professionally and emotionally. Together with Oliver they make an unusual but adorable duo whose clashing personalities complement each other in a unique way. Yet again, Ms Greene has penned a multi-player story, casting shadows of doubt to each one of the players, throwing the reader off more than once. As with the previous books, the tension is slow-building, interspersed with glimpses to Gen's personal and social life through her relationship with the ever patient Mack and also Oliver (Livvie). I found their bond heart-warming, and I particularly appreciated the delicate way Ms Greene handled Oliver's growing into his own skin (literally in his case). Add to that rich in detail descriptions of the enchanting city of Carmel-by-the-sea in California, great banter and excellent writing, and you get a fantastic mystery that you won't be able to put down. I highly recommend it!

HASH(0x9a2f657c) out of 5 stars An impressive and compelling mystery! May 27 2014
By Jenna Czaplewski at The Girl with Book Lungs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Art is a subjective thing. There is no right or wrong way to view or interpret each piece; whatever feeling or emotion a painting or drawing or sculpture brings out will be different for every viewer. For Sophie Keene, a portrait of a young woman on a cliff makes her feel guilt and grief, longing and hope. Like so many of the world’s great masterworks, this particular painting evokes these same or similar emotions in just about every person who sees it. And, like the great masters of art, author Molly Greene is creating an impressive portfolio of special canvases of her own: her Genevieve Delacourt mystery series.

In Paint Me Gone, Sophie hires Gen (a Private Investigator) to help track down the artist of a painting found at a local San Francisco thrift shop. The woman in the painting bears a striking resemblance to Sophie’s sister, Shannon, who disappeared years earlier. The police think Shannon was involved in a murder and subsequently killed herself, but Sophie has never truly believed that to be true.

Gen doesn’t have much to go on; only an unsigned canvas donated anonymously to a thrift store, and the strong hunch of a sister. But, in true Gen Delacourt style, she’s up for the challenge. With a little help from her friends, of course!

Paint Me Gone continues to build the series character roster, and also brings back some familiar faces from previous books. Reading Molly Greene’s books is always a fun experience. They feel fresh and welcoming, like spending time with a good friend. And, having visited San Francisco and Monterey, I really liked revisiting through the story. (If you haven’t been there, don’t worry! Molly’s writing will make you feel as though you’re in a familiar place with lifelong friends.)

I think Paint Me Gone is my favorite of the series so far, and I’m eager for more. Especially for more Mack!

The Gen Delacourt series are very good. I also like the fact that Molly Greene keeps them clean of filthy words. If you like a good mystery with humor and decency you will enjoy these books.

HASH(0x9a2f6960) out of 5 stars Paint me Pleased June 10 2014
By Susan Goldin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Ms. Green's mystery "Paint Me Gone" is a masterful tale told on the beautiful backdrops of San Francisco and Carmel. The clever way the author's back store---the love life of the central character, Genny Delacourt---is woven into the difficult examination of a twenty year NYC murder-suicide (on behest of a sister looking for the truth behind her sister's disappearance so many years before)---is done so skillful a single tapestry unfolds. It is a pleasure to read a mystery with as many twists and turns as threads in an Aubusson masterpiece. Gen Delecourt's colorful neighbor and sometime helper-sidekick, Oliver (Liv) is as wise and colorful as his resplendid closet of drag outfits --- the only items still in his closet. He might be a San Francisco cliche but is a treasure nonetheless. His presence and viewpoint gives depth to both front and back story while adding enthusiastic life to the storytelling. The author's world class skill at dialogue and pauses allows for the requisite reading between the lines of the best told tales. Each new action and reaction, fact and deadend, detail and placement in the puzzle being pieced together --- are wonderfully crafted such that a nearly real world is created for this author's readers. She does a brilliant job! It was a pleasure to read this book and a happy experience in armchair sleuthing. I expect to follow this author and continue to read her books which is my ultimate compliment. In a world were complication, diversion and competition for attention is the will be a pleasure to spend time in the worlds Molly Greene writes into life between front and back covers.

HASH(0x9a2f6d2c) out of 5 stars An enjoyable read, well written Oct. 1 2014

First off, I didn't notice any spelling, grammar or usage problems. Hurrah! Basically, I enjoyed the book. An enjoyable read, I read it in basically one sitting, with breaks for food and such. I liked it enough that I am considering paying actual money (which I almost never do; I read probably 200 freebies a year and pay for maybe five or ten) for the next book. Judging by the sample, it also should be interesting. I'm grateful that I happened to stumble over "Paint Me Gone" while it was free. And grateful for the good writing. Some of the freebies I've gotten lately have been poor enough that I didn't get very far into them before giving up and deleting them.
***addition a few minutes later... I guess I should add that one very likable character is gay, but there is no pushing of lifestyles and the book is very clean. No swearing, I think, and no sex. Basically a fun read. This is the first book I have read by Molly Greene.
