About the Book
Art history meets mystery! SDMA February 2023 Art of Reading Book Club pick.
Art historian Cate Adamson leaves her troubled family in the Midwest to complete her doctorate in New York—only to find herself assigned to an impossible sexist advisor. She struggles to impress him until she discovers a hidden painting, possibly a Baroque masterpiece. Risking her career, financial disaster, and further alienation from her family, she flees to Spain with the painting to consult art experts.
Antonio, an impoverished duke, meets Cate on the train to Seville, and joins her search while attempting to rescue the decaying legacy of his family. They find clues and uncover evidence that will shock the titans of art history, may destroy her prospects as an art historian, and shatter her future with Antonio.

About the Author
Linda Moore studied art history in the Prado Museum (Museo Nacional del Prado) while at the Complutense Universidad of Madrid. She earned degrees at the University of California and Stanford University before opening an art gallery that showcased contemporary Hispanic artists. She has served on art museum boards, edited and published exhibition catalogs, contributed to anthologies, and written for art journals.
When not traveling or attending an art exhibit, she can be found in San Diego or Kauai watching films, reading alongside her husband who collects 18th and 19th century travel narratives, and sharing photos of her grandchildren with her wine-drinking book clubs, bridge, and golfing pals. Attribution is her first novel.
