Death on Canvas finds painter Jessie O’Bourne working with Norwegian deputy Arvid Abrahmsen on a desperate search for a killer and two missing Thomas Moran masterpieces worth millions. The paintings connect the cold case murder of Jessie's great aunt Kate with the present day murder of a Native American grad student Jessie discovers in the O'Bourne family hayfield—a girl who whispers before she dies that her attacker was a cop.

This is a fun read with humorous passages, especially with Arvid and Jessie's tomcat Jack.  The colorful setting of rural Montana and characters such as Blackfoot elder, Minna Heron Woman, add to the delightful surprises in this modern detective "art mystery".

the Jessie O'Bourne art mysteries

Death at Crooked Creek finds Jessie and Jack in Montana for an art "expo" during an unseasonable March snowstorm.  After she finds a body in the Hawk, her beloved motorhome, she becomes embroiled in a murder case involving a local teenager, and begins receiving threatening notes - each accompanied by a tiny toy tractor. 

Arvid, Russell and Grant join forces to help protect Jessie and find the killer before the most recent death threat becomes a reality.
