She finds the dead body of a naked man, and is soon helping her friend Adam Davidson to investigate the murder. Who is the dead man and what was his involvement with the theft of a painting and a sampler from the art gallery? Who owns the art, James
    Trevelyan, an elderly man whose genealogy may hold the key, or the owners of Evan's, the restaurant where they were found? More bodies turn up as the murderer kills the others in his criminal gang. Then he turns his attention to Anne.

    "I am so pleased to have this novel published. Genealogists have to be detectives, as I discovered on researching my own family. I think the reader will enjoy following the genealogical clues to the solution of the mystery."
