Abstract Aliases

(The third book in the Body of Art Mystery series)
A novel by

"As engaging and entertaining a worldwide romp as the first two books... Ritter Ames has penned a marvelous story with Laurel Beacham continuing to show her cleverness and intuition portraying a strong character... I was thrilled!" - King's River Life Magazine

Abstract clues lead to new questions. New leads turn to "dead" ends. A heist plot ties to forgeries. Adversaries resurface twisting an already complicated case. And art recovery expert Laurel Beacham must not only outwit criminals, but keep her wits around Jack Hawkes's cheeky ego.

Before the criminals they were tracking headed underground, evidence pointed toward two organizations as key to an epic art heist. Despite their best efforts, Laurel and her team haven't caught a break in months - even Jack's unofficial intel stuttered to a halt. But on New Year's, as Big Ben's bell tolls midnight, the guilty return and nowhere is safe. A source in Rome is killed within hours. Other allies are attacked in Rome and London, and a contact in Germany reports dangerous shadows closing in. The nearer the answers, the higher the stakes. Worse, Jack may not be the only one Laurel must learn to trust to avoid another brush with death.

"This third tale in the author's Bodies of Art Mystery series takes off as fast as a speeding locomotive... The twists in this story will keep you reading until the amazing end... Have a great deal of fun while delving into the art trade filled with betrayal, old secrets, greed, and some extremely strange gifts." - Suspense Magazine

"Ritter has done it again with this fast paced, riveting, non-stop action roller-coaster ride filled with a multitude of surprising twists and turns that kept me reading until the end... Snappy dialogue, great cast of characters and the chance to explore the art world was what the author expertly brought to this story and I can't wait for the next installment." - Dru's Book Musings

"Bad guys, threats, secrets, forgeries, stolen art, fraud, and more guys turning up dead or almost dead... This volume is the most action-packed of all three... The characters are so complicated and realistic they inspire you to turn the pages...These books can each be read alone, but they are so much more enjoyable when you know the whole story by reading all three, in order." - Book Review Crew

"She's done it again. Ritter Ames has left me breathless with action-packed, globe-trotting duo Laurel Beacham and Jack Hawkes... think espionage, art forgeries, high dollar crime, mysteries entwined within mysteries and unexpected twists, both caper-wise and personally for the characters... love that the story takes so many suspenseful twists and turns... I can't wait for book four." - Ellie's Reads
