English | 2017 | Mystery & Thriller | ePUB | 370 KB

When a beautiful woman enters Michael Whiting’s London art gallery and asks for his help he is intrigued.
Isobel Sadler, as she introduces herself, has inherited a painting – ‘Landscape of Lies’ – completed c. 1537 and showing nine curious figures against a landscape background. To Michael the work is of ‘decorative value only’, but Isobel explains that an art historian, George Grainger, offered her £1,000 for it. She refused, but two days later she disturbed a burglar at her home trying to steal the picture.
She is convinced there is a mystery attached to the landscape. Michael teams up with Isobel, and by careful detective work learn that the heirloom is in fact a ‘puzzle map’ which, properly read, could lead to a cache of priceless relics, buried at the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries by a rich Somerset priory. However, Grainger has also acquired a copy of the painting, and the race is on – only Grainger will stop at nothing, even murder.
A gripping novel of romance and suspense, Landscape of Lies has all the elements of a typical Hitchcock adventure.
