The Mystery of the Missing Masterpiece

“The great thing about the Australian Crime Fiction scene these days is there is a book for just about every sort of reader. THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING MASTERPIECE (and the earlier book THE CURSE OF THE GOLDEN YO-YO) are the sort of books that may appeal to people who like their crime on the lighter side, their romance on the slightly chaotic side, their humour on the overt side, and their clothes on the designer / name side. It won’t hurt if you fancy those food porn style descriptions that make you drool into your toast and jam as well.”

ornelia Finnigan, the loudest, loveliest and luckiest PI, is back – bigger, brighter and funnier than ever. Having recovered from her near fatal run-in with a novice nun, Cornelia is the lucky recipient of a Tang dynasty porcelain horse. Funny that it looks just like the one the triads are murderously searching for

Hilarious antics ensue as a plastic surgeon’s after-hours consultations are uncovered, followed by a late-night pursuit of a shifty courier that leaves our heroine dangerously dangling. It all adds up to a rollicking good read.

Another book from the author of The Curse Of The Golden Yo-Yo.
