Crime always leaves a stain . . .
Lena Szarka, a Hungarian cleaner, dusts off her detective skills when a masterpiece is stolen from a gallery she cleans with her cousin Sarika. But when Sarika goes missing too, accusations start to fly.
Convinced her cousin is innocent, Lena sweeps her way through the secrets of the London art scene. With the evidence mounting against Sarika and the police on her trail, Lena needs to track down the missing painting if she is to clear her cousin.
Embroiling herself in the sketchy world of thwarted talents, unpaid debts and elegant fraudsters, Lena finds that there’s more to this gallery than meets the eye.
Yesterday, I listed Invisible as one of the books I want to read this first half of 2019, and what intrigued me there is the same thing here: that no-one looks twice at a janitor or a cleaner, and as such they get to know all the secrets. Throw in the London art scene, and yeah this sounds good!
