Description

Silver Bay, Oregon, a small coastal resort town, is home to three generations of women: Marnie, the widowed owner of a gift shop; Van, her granddaughter who is about to graduate from medical school; and Stef, mercurial and difficult, a brilliant artist who refuses to sell her work. When Stef discovers that Dale Oliver-the latest husband/paramour-is trying to sell her work behind her back, she puts a stop to it and threatens to do the same to him. Then Stef dies in an accident in her studio, and Dale shows up with a signed contract granting him the right to sell her work. Convinced Stef was murdered to steal her work, Marie and Van decide to do whatever is necessary to see that Dale doesn't get away with it. They enlist the help of the new guy in town, Tony, a former New York City cop who might be the only one who can prove it was murder and bring the killer to justice.

In Kate Wilhelm's latest crime novel, a small Oregon town is rocked by a wheels-within-wheels case of art, fraud, and murder.

Silver Bay, Oregon, a small coastal resort town of under a thousand residents, is home to three generations of women: Marnie, the long-widowed owner of a small gift shop; Van, her granddaughter who is about to graduate from medical school; and Stef, mercurial and difficult, a brilliant artist who refuses to sell her work. When Stef discovers that Dale Oliver—the latest husband/paramour in a very long line—is trying to sell her work behind her back, she puts a stop to it and threatens to do the same to him. Shortly thereafter, Stef dies in an accident in her studio, and Dale shows up with a signed contract granting him the right to sell her work. Convinced that Stef was murdered to steal her artwork, Marie and Van, grandmother and granddaughter, decide to do whatever is necessary to see that Dale doesn't get away with any of it. This includes enlisting the help of the new stranger in town, Tony, a former New York City cop who might be the only one who can prove it was murder and bring the killer to justice.
