When she's called by Edward and Ava Towson to appraise a possible Tiffany lamp, Josie Prescott’s delighted; most stained glass lamps aren't Tiffany, but some are and their sale brings a hefty commission. Her delight turns to puzzlement a few days later, when the real Ava Towson is killed, and Josie learns that the wealthy couple who requested her help are impostors, and their story about the Tiffany lamp was a lie. The Tiffany lamp she'd declared authentic has been replaced with a fake.

"WOW! This story had so many twists and turns, and keeping you on the edge as to what was going to happen next, that I literally couldn't sit still! At times it was so intense I just had to put the book down . . . AND WALK AWAY . . . I love books that draw you in, and Mr. Bell does this very well. The story was so realistic and believable that it read like it had been taken from the headlines. Riveting. Engrossing. Suspenseful. I look forward to reading this author again."
