This bewitching first novel is a puzzle, wrapped in a mystery, disguised as an adventure, and delivered as a work of art.
When a book of unexplainable occurances brings Petra Andalee & Calder Pillay together, strange things start to happen: seemingly unrelated events connect, an eccentric old woman seeks their company, & an invaluable Vermeer painting disappears. Before they know it, the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal. As Petra & Calder are drawn clue by clue into a mysterious labyrinth they must draw on their powers of intuition, their skills at problem solving, and their knowledge of Vermeer. Can they decipher a crime that has left even the FBI baffled?

Fun and artistic, a masterpiece=)User Review - Kids Bookseller - Borders
FANTASTIC! I was extremely impressed with this book and immediately went looking for the second one in the series. It's a great mystery about a stolen piece of art, but its also a great story about each character and what art means to them. Read full review
