Description

A controversial masterpiece resurfaces in Budapest. A ballerina's headless corpse is found beneath the boardwalk at Brighton Beach. And New York's Russian mob is about to collide with the equally ruthless art world... Maddy Blume, an ambitious young art buyer for a Manhattan hedge fund, is desperate to track down a priceless painting by Marcel Duchamp, the most influential artist of the twentieth century. The discovery of a woman's decapitated body thrusts criminal investigator Alan Powell into a search for the same painting, with its enigmatic image of a headless nude. And a Russian thief and assassin known as the Scythian must steal the painting to save his reputation – and his life. The murderous race is on. And in the lead is an insidious secret society intent on reclaiming the painting for reasons of its own – and by any means necessary....

        Starred review from January 23, 2012
        Nevala-Lee’s cerebral, exciting debut proves there’s plenty of life left in the Da Vinci Code–style thriller as long as fresh venues and original characters enhance the familiar plot elements and genre tropes. When a small painting of a headless woman by surrealist painter Marcel Duchamp comes up for auction at Sotheby’s in New York, Maddy Blume, who works for an art investment company called the Reynard Art Fund, bids on the painting, but she loses out at $11 million to a bidder representing a Russian oligarch. A number of disparate elements—the Rosicrucians, composer Eric Satie, the Black Dahlia murder, occultist Aleister Crowley, chess, the Soviet secret service, Lenin, and several obscure secret societies—involve a conspiracy that Maddy and Englishman Alan Powell of the Serious Organized Crime Agency must unravel as they investigate a series of mysterious killings. Nevala-Lee leaves a few loose ends to be resolved in what is sure to be the eagerly awaited sequel. Agent: David Halpern, the Robbins Office.
