Summary (From the publisher):

Things are finally looking up for Annie Swann, illustrator of children's books and niece of local sleuth Homer Kelly. After years of dead-end romances and broken dreams, one of Annie's favorite wishes is coming true at last. All she wanted was a new wing on the east end of her house, complete with a blank wall, thirty-five feet long. Here she could begin her most treasured work yet: a painting rich and complex, thick with fairy stories, honoring her lifelong obsession. And now she has it - an enormous empty canvas upon which she has finally begun her masterpiece. But without warning, her luck begins to run dry. There appears on her new wall, over and over again, a mysterious face, no matter how often she paints it out. Is someone trying to send Annie a message? If so, what is it, and who would do such a thing? As if the wicked face were a portent of things to come, Annie's dreams soon come crashing down. She finds her tenants' eight-year-old son, Eddy Gast, dead beneath her beautiful wall. Eddy's parents blame Annie for his death and decide to sue her for all she's worth. It becomes a case for Homer Kelly as Annie enlists his aid in a deadly showdown.
