Painted Truth (Alix Thorssen Mystery Series Book 2) (English Edition) Versión Kindle
"An unusually complex art swindle that will leave you gasping with admiration for the killer's imagination and industry. McClendon knits detective work together with domestic betrayals in a satisfyingly intricate tangle." -- Kirkus Reviews
Set in Jackson Hole where the Old West merges with upscale art galleries and adrenaline adventures, this second mystery featuring Alix Thorssen (after The Bluejay Shaman) finds the art dealer on her home-ground but without the comforts of home. Her partnership and gallery with sexy Paolo Segundo are at a crossroads. When another gallery on the town square burns, revealing the body of a famous artist, Alix is drawn into the investigation as an appraiser of the lost paintings. Ray Tantro was a has-been at 30 but was on the verge of a comeback. The death is ruled a suicide but Alix has her doubts. Why are the police so quick to dismiss foul play? The investigation makes her confront her own contradictions as an art lover, turning everything she knows upside down. A second murder rocks the resort town. Alix must examine her ethics and indeed her way of life to find the truth, and justice. But not without a very high price.
Writing in a lyrical, often humorous style McClendon brings the surrounding Wyoming territories to life, and her insight into the art world is intriguing. Alix Thorssen is a charming, grouchy, quirky, and even harder on herself than she is on the people around her. The plot is a treat. — The Armchair Detective

A burned-out gallery with a dead body in it sets Alix searching for secrets amid friends with their own agenda.
I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Once again, this isn't an awful book, but it just didn't catch my interest. I put it down halfway through and never cared what was going to happen enough to pick it back up. The title was quite clever, and sadly follows my observed rule that the cleverer the title, the less interesting the book.
there were at least two places in the book where a context change occurred out of the blue, with absolutely no warning. each of these was quite jarring, and required the reader to figure out where the story line needed to be mended so it could be understood.
other than that, though, a fascinating story with what felt like real-life twists. with a good editor on-board, this story could have been a solid five stars. as it is, it's worth your time at 3.5...
