    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Retired police chief Katherine Sullivan moved away from Edina, Minnesota to feed her artistic soul in New Mexico. But when she receives an urgent call, her serenity is shattered. Nathan Walker, her best friend and former colleague from her days on the police force, is missing and his crew of security experts hasn't seen him in days. Now it's up to Katherine to fly home and track him down. Meanwhile, Edina is reeling from the murder of a local woman, which looks more and more like it could have a connection to Nathan's disappearance. And as Katherine digs deeper into the investigation, locating Nathan's abandoned car and compiling a list of potential kidnappers, another body is found--and Katherine fears time is running out for her friend."--Dust jacket.

PW Reviews 2017 March #4

In Barnes's uneven sequel to 2016's The Fine Art of Murder, retired police chief and passionate painter Katherine Sullivan—who left Edina, Minn., for an artists' colony in Taos, N.Mex.—again rushes back to Edina to help someone she cares about. Ex-cop and widower Nathan Walker, a Denzel Washington look-alike who owns a security firm, has gone missing. (Katie's late husband, a slain cop, took on Nathan as a partner when other white cops gave him the cold shoulder.) Not trusting her successor, dour Chief Bostwick, to find Nathan, Katie eagerly un-retires and rises to the challenge. Meanwhile, a local woman's murder may be tied to Nathan's disappearance. Old enough to delight in the rare day when nothing hurts or aches, alive enough to yearn for more than Nathan's friendship, devoted to her daughter and grandkids yet wanting her own life, Katie is a welcome addition to the cozy genre. On the other hand, too many quirky characters and subplots dilute the suspense. And Taos, enticingly described, is a tease. (May)
