The Art of Murder Publisher's Summary
Monty is a struggling, unknown artist, living in a loft in Soho. From his third floor walk up, he watches his beautiful neighbor as she comes and goes. Too shy and reclusive to ask her out, he paints her again and again. Suddenly the police are at his door. His goddess, his dream woman, is dead, and the police like him for the crime.
Detective Roarke sifts through the forensics, motives, and physical evidence, and at first glance it seems that all the evidence points to the strange artist who is obsessed with the beautiful actress. But, as time passes, several other suspects come to the attention of Detective Roarke and the case is now not so open-and-shut.
As the detective immerses himself in her life, it turns out that she has more than one secret.
