PI Red Farlow has a meeting with Wickham Art Center board chair in Atlanta, but when he arrives, he finds the chairman slumped over his potter's wheel with a medieval battle dagger protruding from his back.
During the investigation, other victims are discovered in the pottery studio, each meeting the same gruesome end as the chairman. Is the dagger a dramatic flourish of a twisted mind, or a more profound message?
Clues soon reveal a real estate scheme—wealthy Venezuelan investors plan to plow Whickham under and build condos on the site.
Red gets his hands muddy as he throws himself into finding the answers.
Another fantastic addition to the series
I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and this latest book was exactly what I expected in the best possible way. Red Farlow is an intriguing main character to follow and this latest caper is a page turner in every sense of the word. If you enjoy a good crime caper that will keep you entertained and guessing, this book and series are definite must reads!
