Read full description of the books:
In this, the last (thank God) of the Claire Reynier mysteries, Claire is told by a drug addicted, homeless woman that she (Claire) is "looking beautiful" and Claire finds some earth-shattering connection with the woman. Then the woman is found dead in a storeroom of the library so Claire, of course, must find out how she died. The book goes down hill from there and this happens on page two. This author has real problems with suspension of disbelief (why would any sane reader believe that a "world famous artist" would claim a dead homeless woman as the daughter whom he has not seen in 17 years base solely on the oral description by Claire?) and repetition. Ugh. Keep away from this series.
