Juliet Blackwell Books Overview
The first in a new mystery series starring art forger Gone good Annie Kincaid Annie breaks the news to her curator ex boyfriend Ernst: his museum’s new $15 million Caravaggio is a fake. Then the janitor is killed, Ernst disappears, and a dealer makes off with several Old Master drawings. If she breaks the case using her old connections, Annie can finally pay the rent. But doing so could also draw her back into the underworld of forgers she swore she’d left behind.
Modernism isn’t Annie’s thing, but even she is surprised to discover that the ‘sculpture’ in a prestigious gallery’s grisly new exhibition is an all too real corpse the artist’s. Meanwhile, a Chagall painting is stolen from the Brock Museum, and Annie’s old friend Bryan is accused of being in on the fix. To track down the missing Chagall, she’ll need the dubious assistance of a certain sexy art thief. And if Michael or whatever his real name may be isn’t distraction enough, Annie’s mother shows up in town, acting strangely. Annie’s got to solve these mysteries, and fast because art is long, but life can be very, very short.
Former forger turned faux finisher Annie Kincaid hopes that if she can help return an alleged masterpiece to Italy, her sketchy reputation will finally be redeemed. But when a sexy art thief and murder enter the picture, Annie realizes that it won’t be so easy to put things to rest.
Former art forger Annie Kincaid has been operating a legitimate decorative painting business for quite a while, but memories are long in the art world. Now, with the blessing of the FBI Art Squad, Annie’s using her underworld connections to boost her new art investigation business, where she’s partnered with none other than ex art thief/ love interest Michael X. Johnson. At first it’s strictly business, but when she stumbles across a body in an exclusive Nob Hill men’s club, and an insurance adjuster asks and an insurance adjuster asks her to find a stolen and forged erotic painting, and then her Uncle Anton is attacked, Annie’s on the trail of more than just art. This time, she’s looking for justice. Annie is a strong woman protagonist. She has reinvented herself from a checkered past as an art forger to a legitimate businesswoman/artist. She moves easily between high and low social circles. as she makes the rounds of San Francisco and Bay Area locales, including tunnels beneath the pavements of Nob Hill and Chinatown; the homes and hideouts even a downtown sex club of the rich and famous; and the artists’ studios South of Market. The Art Lover’s series has an entertaining light touch, especially when either of Annie Kincaid’s two romantic interests appear. But Arsenic and Old Paint also deals with serious social issues some history of slave trading in Chinatown, and its connection with San Francisco powers that were; and the male exploitation of the female and immigrant powerless, an issue that continues to this day.
