Summary

When a book of unexplainable occurences brings Petra and Calder together, strange things start to happen: Seemingly unrelated events connect; an eccentric old woman seeks their company; an invaluable Vermeer painting disappears. Before they know it, the two find themselves at the center of an international art scandal, where no one is spared from suspicion. As Petra and Calder are drawn clue by clue into a mysterious labyrinth, they must draw on their powers of intuition, their problem solving skills, and their knowledge of Vermeer. Can they decipher a crime that has stumped even the FBI?

Author Biography

Blue Balliett grew up in New York City. She has always loved museums, always loved mysteries, and always loved hearing about things that can't be explained in the usual ways. Blue studied art history at Brown University. She and her family live in Chicago, Illinois, where, before becoming a full-time writer, she taught at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools Brett Helquist grew up in Utah and Arizona with his six sisters. As kids, they didn't visit many museums. He says his love of art came from all the comic books he read
