"Emma Sharpe, granddaughter of world-renowned art detective Wendell Sharpe, is a handpicked member of a small Boston-based FBI team. For the past decade Emma and her grandfather have been trailing an elusive serial art thief. The first heist was in Ireland, where an ancient Celtic cross was stolen. Now the Sharpes receive a replica of the cross after every new theft--reminding them of their continued failure to capture their prey. When Emma receives a message that leads her to the body of a woman on a small island in Boston Harbor, she finds the victim holding a small, cross-inscribed stone--one she recognizes all too well. Emma's fiance, FBI deep-cover agent Colin Donovan, is troubled that she's gone off to the island alone, especially given the deadly turn the thief has taken. But as they dig deeper they are certain there is more to this murder than meets the eye. As the danger escalates, Emma and Colin must also face do-or-die questions about their relationship. While there's no doubt they are in love, can they give their hearts and souls to their work and have anything left for each other? There's one thing Emma and Colin definitely agree on: before they can focus on their future, they must outwit one of the smartest, most ruthless killers they've ever encountered."--Print.

The saga continues with both Colin and Emma. They are traveling back and forth from Ireland and Maine trying to solve a murder as well as help Emma's grandfather solve the old case of the missing art. Another good read.

The latest in the line of Sharpe and Donovan novels by the author starts off with a murder in the Boston harbour and brings in an array of newcomers and characters already established in the series. The matter of an art thief, an underlying subplot in the series, also factors in. The author moves things along briskly and gives her leading characters an easygoing chemistry.
