The recent theft of family portraits seems to be nothing more than a prank after the artwork is returned, painted over with the faces of locals. But then a body is discovered, and Lord Francis Powerscourt risks everything to find the killer.
About Death on the Holy Mountain
Praise for the Powerscourt series:
“Fine prose, high society, and [a] complex plot recommend this series.”—Library Journal
“One hopes to see more of Lord Powerscourt and his friends in the near future.”—Publishers Weekly
In 1905, Lord Francis Powerscourt investigates a series of art thefts from stately homes of the Protestant gentry in Ireland. Then people begin to vanish. As Powerscourt closes in on the killer, his own life is threatened and his patriotism is questioned.
