Summary
When her dream job turns into a living nightmare, causing her to become the prime suspect in a murder investigation, art gallery manager Alice Humphrey must prove that she has been set up, a deadly mission that plunges her into a high-tech criminal conspiracy that is shockingly linked to her own family. She arrives at the gallery one morning to meet her boss, Drew Campbell, only to find the place cleaned out, save for Drew's corpse. She is bewildered when Drew's ID doesn't check out, nor does the background of the gallery or the primary artist it represents. But when the police show up with a photograph of her lookalike that suggests she and Drew had more than a business relationship, Alice realizes she has been placed at the center of a nefarious plan. But whose? And why? Beginning to dig, Alice finds herself circling ever closer to home, her discoveries threatening everything she's ever known about family and identity. She is framed for murder and left scrambling to find answers, some of which may have to do with long hidden secrets involving her own family
