Painting in the Shadows

Deadly paintings, mysterious colours and hidden works…


Art dealer Alex Clayton and conservator John Porter are thrilled to be previewing the

Melbourne International Museum of Art’s (MIMA) newest exhibition, until they

witness a museum worker collapse and badly damage a reportedly cursed painting.

Belief in the curse is strengthened when MIMA’s senior conservator Meredith

Buchanan dies less than twenty-four hours later while repairing the work. But Alex

and John are convinced there is a decidedly human element at work in the museum.

The evidence sets them on the trail of a mysterious painting that could hold a key to

Meredith’s death, and the stakes are raised higher when Alex is offered her dream job

at MIMA. Damaging the museum’s reputation will jeopardise her professional future.

The friends soon realise they are facing an adversary far more ruthless than they had

anticipated, and there is much more at risk than Alex’s career
