A Study in Detail

A novel by

"Sharp dialog, peculiar but fleshed out characters, an absorbing story, and finally, a depth of understanding of human complexities, desires, and foibles... Five well-deserved stars."
--Heather Haven, award-winning author of The Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries


Paul is a simple outdoorsman with a volatile artist wife--until Marta disappears and her body is never found. Paul finds a message in her last painting telling him that she faked her death to draw attention to her paintings.

An insurance investigator questions a $5M policy Marta took out shortly before her death and an enforcer shows up demanding that Paul pay him the $5M Marta stole from his casino. A gallery in Arizona claims to have new Marta paintings.

Paul goes to investigate, followed by the insurance investigator, the enforcer, and a young new-age girl determined to help Paul forget his dead wife.
