Dr Michael Levitt MB BS (UWA), FRACS trained as a surgeon in Western Australia before pursuing subspecialty training in colorectal surgery at London’s St Mark’s and Royal Free hospitals. Since 1990 he has worked in WA as a specialist colorectal surgeon.
Mark Lewis, a former surgeon, has found solace in running a small art gallery. When Jan, a local woman, brings him a painting for valuing, it looks uncannily like a painting by the enigmatic artist James Devlin. Yet Jan claims it was done by a seventeen-year-old boy called Charlie.
As Mark searches for the painting's true provenance, he is joined by the attractive and clever Linda de Vries. But the pair will learn that James Devlin is a man whose past is as blank as an empty canvas, and he is determined to keep it that way.
