Murder In The Arts District
Murder In The Arts District by Greg Herren
first published 2014, paperback
When neither the cops nor their insurance company believes a wealthy gay couple's valuable art collection was stolen, they hire Chanse MacLeod to track down the thieves and the missing art. Chanse isn't entirely sure he believes the couple, either-especially when it turns out some of the art may have been forgeries. The trail of the art leads him to a new gallery on Julia Street in the Arts District opened by a couple new to town that seem to have no past. When one of themturns up dead and the other vanishes, it's now up to Chanse to find not only the missing art, but a ruthless murderer who will kill anyone who gets in the way.
