A dying Native American girl whispers to Jessie that her attacker was a cop. Her world, a world of brilliant color visualized with the eyes of an artist, turns dark. The cop Jessie knows best is her old flame, Russell, and there’s been something disquieting, something suspicious about the love of her life. Death on Canvas pulls the reader into a search for missing masterpieces and the investigation of the cold case murder of an artist who knew too much. Jessie's aunt Kate.
DEATH on CANVAS . . . It’s as tightly woven and beautifully crafted as Cherry's paintings...I couldn’t put the book down. Kendra Page, Florida
When Jessie discovers a dead body was hidden in the Hawk during The Crooked Creek Art Expo in Montana, she’s thrown into a complex murder investigation tied to the death of a teenager. Threatening notes and tiny toy tractors are delivered to her door, and she calls on her Norwegian friend, Detective Sergeant Arvid Abrahmsen and old flame Sheriff Russell Bonham of Sage Bluff to help investigate.
FBI art theft Agent Grant Kennedy arrives in Crooked Creek to attend the auction and joins forces with Arvid and Russell. Their goal is to find the murderer before the latest death threat slipped under Jessie’s door becomes a reality.
