    Book One of the Zelda Richardson Mystery series—The Lover’s Portrait—is a suspenseful whodunit about Nazi-looted artwork that transports readers to WWII and present-day Amsterdam. Art, religion, and anthropology collide in Rituals of the Dead (Book Two), a thrilling artifact mystery set in Papua and the Netherlands.   As much as "Portrait" focuses on the fanning of flames, is also a film about memory, how the thoughts of a former love can be more of a comfort than hanging onto a relationship destined to never : Ryan Kohn.

I have been reading a lot of art books lately—just sort of fell into it, and I have always loved a good mystery. So this novel seemed to be the best of both worlds. It is set in Amsterdam, so my Vermeer meter was on high.
