The Painter's Craft

A mystery set around an artist’s studio in Toronto.

A Toronto artist finds herself in the unlikely role of amateur sleuth as she sets about unraveling the strange death of her mentor, a renowned artist, through the tangle of a working art studio and the legacies left behind by the murdered artist’s love of mythology and Shakespeare.

“A triple treat for mystery lovers! There’s the murder investigation of a wonderful artist, his unique legacies, each requiring a knowledge of mythology and in the artist’s studio we discover how paintings are made . . .” —Ted Wood, novelist
