Publisher's Summary

London art dealer Charles Garrett has devoted his life to appreciating and acquiring beauty, both in art and in his companions. His fashionable life is rocked to the core when he discovers the body of a young artist, Paolo Valero, in a pool of blood in his gallery.

As Paolo’s mentor, Charles is haunted by the horror of his violent death. Seeking closure, he investigates Paolo’s past and soon discovers a tangled web of motives and potential suspects, some closer to home than he ever imagined. He’s drawn to Antony Walker, an aggressive, handsome sculptor with unsavory ties to Paolo. Charles is unsettled by Antony’s forceful nature but irresistibly attracted to his passion and his art.

When the evidence points toward Antony’s guilt, Charles is thrown into emotional turmoil. Has he lost his heart to a killer?

Narration detracted from story

I liked the story and the motive surprised me. I would have liked a longer story with more character development.
I didn't like Sean Crisden's character vocal interpretation. Charles' voice never paused. I didn't hear any passion between Charles and Antony during the love scenes. Usually I can see a character through the voice, but that didn't happen with this performance.

I just couldn't

Wow.(And not in a good way)

I rarely cringe at books, and not
*that* much is so few minutes. Normally I enjoy listening to Crisden's narrations, but this one was, sorry to say horrible. He should *not* attempt a British accent, it didn't work for me on any level. Sadly I only got about 5 minutes into the book before I had to stop.
