The Canvas

Brilliant and beautiful art recovery expert, Emma Kelly, has her suspicions about all the sleepers showing up in the art market. Someone is amassing a fortune, but to what end? When she witnesses the murder of a renowned artist in a Washington, DC museum, and her husband, FBI Assistant Director in Charge, Elliott Baldwin, discharges his weapon in public to save her life, they are drawn into a forgery ring.

In the exciting second installment of the Big Picture Trilogy, The Canvas, the body count rises, culminating in a terror attack outside the walls of the Vatican. Emma unmasks her foe, and they’re only getting started.
How long can she protect the greatest collection of art the world has ever known and her double life?

A fast-paced thriller, THE CANVAS will take you hot on the trail of looted Old Masters, exposing the secrets of the most revered museums and collections.” – Nina Wachsman, author of the Agatha and Silver Falchion nominated The Gallery of Beauties.
