The Subtle Thief

From the publisher:

The Subtle Thief is a witty, elegant and intriguing murder mystery set in New York’s sophisticated art world. You won’t find streetwise thugs or master criminals here, but rather a heady mix of writers, curators, collectors, art dealers and enticing sirens whose world is turned upside down when one of them is found dead in their Manhattan apartment.

Enter our partners-in-detection (and in bed): Desmond Fairbrother, a handsome and wealthy connoisseur, and Abigail Higginson, a sassy novelist from Boston, who have both made their mark on New York’s literary and artistic scene. What begins as a sexy comedy of manners within Manhattan’s artistic community quickly turns in a different direction as our two sleuths piece together a series of elusive clues. Abby tells the story and Desi solves the mystery as our sparring couple entertain friends and suspects alike until the action reaches its surprising finale.
