Rob and Sally need to uncover an ancient secret. But he’s losing control—and loving it.

Robert Stevens has known Sally Langtry for almost his whole life. They’ve been friends forever, and he’s always secretly loved her. Sally, an artist, is so sweet he can’t possibly be the right man for her. She’s free-spirited, innocent and optimistic. Rob has always resisted bringing the darkness of his job, the horridness of what he sees day in and day out, into her life.

He is urged by his colleague, El, and his boss to turn to Sally for help in looking for a stolen Cezanne masterpiece. At a loose end and unsure where else to turn, he does so. El and her lover James recover the painting, but Sally’s curiosity is now piqued. She wants to tag along to study the work of art. Rob, always helpless when it comes to indulging her, agrees. Sally helps discover a series of codes hidden within the picture.

Deeply curious now, both Sally and Rob visit the artist whose work Sal recognises.

The action becomes deadly, but it’s too late for them to turn back. Rob tries to protect Sally, but he no longer has the legendary control he’s so used to working with.

This book was fast-paced and intriguing right from the start and it holds your attention to the end. It was a really good story. The suspense and action were really good and kept you engaged from the beginning....

Lapthorne did a wonderful job with the mystery surrounding the Cezanne.  Not only did she do a good job with that, there were lots of humorous situations as well as tragedy regarding the theft...

Elizabeth Lapthorne - Three Things USA Today


Three of my favorite reality shows:


I have really enjoyed Australian Masterchef. I've always liked cooking shows in general (my grandma was addicted to them and passed on that love). And while there's a few I enjoy, Australian Masterchef seems to grab me the most. It moves at a fast pace, has some really out-there dishes and challenges and seems to have the formula right for holding my attention.
