A letter hidden in a painting. A story of lethal obsession. Can Denton crack the case in time?
Denton is used to getting unconventional mail but one letter in particular peaks his curiosity. A note from a young woman, Mary, saying she’s in terrible danger and needs his help. But the letter is months old and was only forwarded to him when the buyer of a painting found it stuck behind the frame. Presumably whatever Mary was frightened of has already happened. So why did she hide the note behind this particular painting instead of he sending it?
As he delves into the heart of Bohemian London, Denton learns the border between genius and madness is hard to discern but easy to cross. When shocking truths come to light Denton needs to confront his own demon and solve the case before it’s too late.
