A fabulous read.</p> <p><strong>From the Blurb:</strong></p> <p>An unsolved murder comes to light after almost seventy years...</p> <p>In 1999, art dealer Alex Cayton stumbles across a lost portrait of Molly Dean, an artist's muse brutally slain in Melbourne in 1930. Alex buys the painting and sets out to uncover more details, but finds there are strange inconsistencies: Molly's mother seemed unconcerned by her daughter's violent death, the main suspect was never brought to trial despite compelling evidence, and vital records are missing. Alex enlists the help of her close friend, art conservator John Porter, and together they sift through the clues and deceptions that swirl around the last days of Molly Dean.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Tags</div> <div class="field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/index.php/taxonomy/term/3221" hreflang="en">#amreading</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/index.php/taxonomy/term/3294" hreflang="en">Am Reading</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/index.php/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Australia</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/index.php/taxonomy/term/2320" hreflang="en">Crime Fiction</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/index.php/taxonomy/term/3524" hreflang="en">The Portrait of Molly Dean</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/index.php/taxonomy/term/109" hreflang="en">Katherine Kovacic</a></div> </div> </div> <section> <h2>Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=10668&amp;2=field_comments&amp;3=comment" token="j1ID_zHRasa7CVHVmAfUkioWDyoLokqCpItZefdj-HM"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Mon, 09 Jul 2018 07:55:01 +0000 Karen 10668 at https://www.austcrimefiction.org https://www.austcrimefiction.org/index.php/blog/amreading-portrait-molly-dean-katherine-kovacic#comments #amreading Aukati, Michalia Arathimos https://www.austcrimefiction.org/index.php/blog/amreading-aukati-michalia-arathimos <span>#amreading Aukati, Michalia Arathimos</span> <span><a title="View user profile." href="/index.php/user/1" lang="" about="/index.php/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Karen</a></span> <span>Thu, 15/02/2018 - 04:57 pm</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>It's that time of the year where posting becomes erratic and reading consumes every spare moment.
