Blackwell North Amer
It was to be the best night of Maggie Kean's life. Spotlights shone on her well-positioned sculptures, her most prized works on display for public viewing at The Outlook gallery. The crowd was impressed, the hors d'oeuvres delectable, and the room full. The evening was turning out to he a smash. That is, until Maggie found herself in the back room, staring at a dead body baking in the kiln ...
When her detective boyfriend and his fellow policemen rush in to identify the body, they discover that the deceased used to sit on the art gallery's board of overseers. Now the whole town is confounded: why would anyone have killed this patron of the arts? And, more importantly, who could have one it?
Maggie has a few hunches - and, to her boyfriend's chagrin, she always follows a hunch. So Maggie, her best friend, and a prospective buyer try to figure out a few things on their own. But soon they realize that the gallery's busts aren't the only ones with a price on their heads ...
