Product Description

From Booklist

London solicitor Trish Maguire has her hands full overseeing more than her share of legal cases, managing her relationship with male friend George, and dealing with the emotional demands of her young half-brother David after the murder of his mother. Then her boss commands her to do a "small favor" for Sir Henry Buxton. The favor consists of finding out how and why Toby Fullwell, curator of the respected Gregoire art collection, of which Sir Henry is a trustee, has recently sold a Pieter de Hooch painting for 5,000,000, well over its true value. Trish reluctantly agrees to take on the case, little realizing that her investigation will take her deep into a world of art forgery and blackmail, reveal a decades-old love story that is as moving as it is implausible, place her and her half-brother in danger, and topple the Gregoire collection and its curator into chaos. Cooper creates a dark and savage story with a deviously clever plot, convincing and complex characters, and a shocking climax. The best yet in a too-little-known series. Emily Melton

I'm not able to judge this book fairly as I got only 1/3 of the way through. M/s Cooper assumes that everyone has read the preceeding book and is therefore aware of all the characters and their names. Unlike other authors who write each book as a separate entity, she alludes to people, names and situations which one would have to had read to know what she is on about.I gave up after battling for some time as ones reading life is too short !

HASH(0xa0f6a738) out of 5 stars Although part of a series, still stands alone successfully June 25 2005
By Eclectician - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I cannot agree with the reviewer who was frustrated by the presence of threads from earlier books in the series. I had read and loved an earlier one, not the one immediately preceding "A place of safety", and once I realised that I remembered that the author was one I'd vowed to follow. I was grateful for this chance find on the library shelves, and second chance to read more about 'Trish McGuire', because I regard Natasha Cooper as a very skillful drawer of characters, and as someone who has insights into human beings I've found enriching, as well as a great storyteller.

Yes, I'll go back and re-read the earlier one, as well as tracking down intervening titles, but I urge anyone who gets the chance to grab this one - it's capable of standing alone, head and shoulders above many other mysteries.
