USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
"Short of hopping on a plane, tearing across Europe with art expert Laurel Beacham is the way to travel. In Abstract Aliases, Ritter Ames delivers a complex plot that will keep you guessing until the end, and captures the high-end art world in such detail one wonders if she isn't moonlighting as an 'art recovery expert' herself " - Carlene O'Neil, Author of the Cypress Cove Mystery Series
"Filled with twists and turns, action, art heists, and plenty of chemistry between the very handsome Jack Hawkes and daring narrator Laurel Beacham...rich descriptions and a discriminating tone of detail...Abstract Aliases continues an excellent collection from Ritter Ames." - Girl with Book Lungs
Abstract clues lead to new questions. New leads turn to "dead" ends. A heist plot ties to forgeries. Adversaries resurface twisting an already complicated case. And art recovery expert Laurel Beacham must not only outwit criminals, but keep her wits around Jack Hawkes's cheeky ego.
Before the criminals they were tracking headed underground, evidence pointed toward two organizations as key to an epic art heist. Despite their best efforts, Laurel and her team haven't caught a break in months--even Jack's unofficial intel stuttered to a halt. But on New Year's, as Big Ben's bell tolls midnight, the guilty return and nowhere is safe. A source in Rome is killed within hours. Other allies are attacked in Rome and London, and a contact in Germany reports dangerous shadows closing in. The nearer the answers, the higher the stakes. Worse, Jack may not be the only one Laurel must learn to trust to avoid another brush with death.
