    • Abstract:
      Summary: " the newest hardcover in the national bestselling Dead-End Job Mystery series, Helen Hawthorne quietly goes undercover at a local library to search for a missing masterpiece. Wealthy socialite Elizabeth Cateman Kingsley has hired Helen to find a missing John Singer Sargent painting, owned by her late father. After his death, many of Davis Cateman's books were donated to the Flora Park library, and his daughter suspects the small watercolor-worth millions-was tucked away inside one of those dusty tomes. To search the stacks, Helen applies for a position as a library volunteer and discovers the library director has a catalog of complaints-from a mischievous calico cat named Paris to the mysterious disappearance of various items that some of the more imaginative staff are attributing to a ghost haunting the building. While her husband Phil sticks his neck out to find a missing necklace, Helen is on her own with no one to lend her a hand. When a dead body turns up in a parking lot, it appears someone is willing to go to any lengths to keep the treasure in the library quiet. Now Helen is bound and determined to find the killer as well as the painting-before she's taken out of circulation herself"-- Provided by publisher.

PW Reviews 2015 March #5

In Viets's snappy 14th Dead-End Job mystery (after 2014's Catnapped!), Fort Lauderdale, Fla., PI Helen Hawthorne hunts for a John Singer Sargeant watercolor worth $1 million that's possibly hidden in a book at the Flora Park Library. Helen goes undercover as a volunteer at the private library, the former home of Gilded Age society beauty Flora Portland, where she finds plenty of mischief afoot. Could Flora's ghost be responsible? Meanwhile, Helen's husband and fellow PI, Phil Sagemont, works another case, the theft of a golf cart and ruby necklace. Phil has to cope with the very rich and spoiled Bree and Chloe Coakley and their sketchy boyfriends, but they don't hold a candle to the entitled demands of the library ladies. Helen and Phil are as entertaining as they've ever been, and it's fun to revisit their neighbors at the Coronado Tropic Apartments. Agent: David Hendin, D.H. Literary. (May)
