Murder is a work of art…

When the acclaimed Cuban painter Wifredo Lam turns up dead in his Greenwich Village studio, officers Juanita Diaz and Brian Fitzgerald of the NYPD, must investigate the crime. But what they find is much more gruesome than they ever could have imagined.

Suspicion soon falls on a tight-knit circle of Surrealist refugees who fled Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II, and Diaz and Fitzgerald must traverse the city, from Chinatown’s underworld to Spanish Harlem’s gangland, to find the truth.

About The Book

The Man Behind Closed Doors  a Mystery by Maria Frankland  What could be so bad that a six-year-old stops talking?
Domestic violence isn’t only perpetrated by men. Ask Paul Jackson who is on remand, accused of stabbing his wife, Michelle. As he reveals his reality
behind their troubled marriage, it seems that only his six-year-old knows what really happened. But she’s trapped in her own world of silence.

My Thoughts

If a woman is found beaten at her home they will arrest the husband, but if you change the situation and put a man beaten by a woman, the police will not take the situation seriously and let the woman go free. Is it fair? Domestic violence is something that women and men can suffer at home, maybe it’s time that we remember it and start taking it seriously.
