Publisher's Summary

French ex-pat Tristan Mourault is the wealthy, urbane heir to a world-renowned collection of art - and an insatiable voyeur enamored with Karen Miller, a 15-year-old from a working-class family in San Francisco. Deciding he must 'rescue' Karen from her unhappy circumstances, Tristan kidnaps her and stages her death to mask his true crime. Years later, Karen is now Gisele, and the pair leads an opulent life in idyllic and rarefied Devon, Washington. But when Nicola, Gisele's young daughter, stumbles upon a secret cache of paintings - all nudes of Gisele - Tristan's carefully constructed world begins to crumble. As Nicola grapples with the tragedy that follows, she crosses paths with Amanda Miller, who comes to Devon to investigate the portraits' uncanny resemblance to her long-lost sister. Set against a byzantine backdrop of greed, artifice, and dangerous manipulations, this is an intoxicating debut that keeps its darkest secrets until the very last page.

    Story
    "In malice,Quite close"

    This book is excellent all around. The story itself kept me awake when I should have been sleeping just because I needed to know what was next. The narrator did an excellent job as well, I know there are a number of good books out there with, should I say "less than good", narration? At any rate, this book is one I will highly recommend,and have, to my friends and family.

    Story
    "Enjoyed it."

    This was an interesting book. Very mysterious. I tried up until the end to figure out the culprit, to no avail. I recommended it to a couple of friends.
