Notes

Description
"When the Cuban painter Wifredo Lam turns up dead in his Greenwich Village studio, the investigation takes Detective Juanita Diaz and her new NYPD counterpart Brian Fitzgerald from Chinatown's underworld to Spanish Harlem's gangland in search of a killer who left a grotesque calling card: an exquisite corpse. Suspicion soon falls on the tight-knit circle of Surrealist refugees who fled Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II. Did one of their bizarre parlor games turn deadly? Set in the sexually liberated New York art world of the 1940s, populated by European artists in exile and the young Americans itching to take over the avant-garde, Harrison's tale is an amalgam of truth and invention."--,Provided by publisher.
