Viets, Elaine, 1950- Dead-end job mystery series.
Note "An Obsidian Mystery."
Summary "PI Helen Hawthorne must pose as a painter at Fort Lauderdale's famous Bonnet House Museum to catch an artful killer... STILL LIFE... The art world is a happening place-- but a brush with death shouldn't be in the picture. Unfortunately, that's just what happens to Helen Hawthorne and her friend Margery. While touring gorgeous Bonnet House, a mansion turned museum, they observe a painting class and note an up-and-coming artist. When they later see her deadly end, Helen is hired to canvas the crime scene-- undercover, of course. Sketchy suspects lurk in the victim's bohemian past. Was the promising painter killed by her jealous husband? Her best friend? A rival using her artful wiles? With her husband, Phil, busy setting a trap for a gold thief, it's up to Helen to paint this killer into a corner..."-- Provided by publisher.
