The Cobalt Sky (Sam Dyke Investigations Book 10)
Edward Ransome is one of England's most famous artists - rich, a friend to celebrities and known for his devotion to his craft for almost fifty years.
Then someone steals his favourite painting - the painting that set Ransome on course to fame and fortune but was never sold and rarely seen.
Sam Dyke is hired to find the painting, and the thief, but quickly discovers that the loss of the painting is only one of the many losses suffered by Ransome, and his family.
What's more, whoever stole the painting is keen to keep it a secret, and committing murder to do so is not out of the question.
Soon Dyke finds he has more than a simple burglary on his hands - it's a case that spans generations and includes more than one ordinary crime.
The Cobalt Sky is a subtle but exciting exploration of the ways in which families can hurt each other over time ... without even trying.
