(From the publisher):
Jessica Fletcher has come to the elegant Hamptons on Long Island's gold coast for a sinfully sweet spell in the sun and a chance to indulge her secret burning passion: painting. In this place where the arts flower and artists flock, she finds a sketching class where she can try to make her dreams of Da Vinci-hood come true.
But Jessica has only a brief time behind an easel before she finds herself under the gun to solve a mystery as tantalizing as its victim. A lovely young model lies like a corpse on a studio floor, and Jessica needs no painter's eye to realize that her look of death is no pose. Jessica lays down her brush and starts picking up every clue in and out of sight. Back at doing what she does best, she finds herself involved in a case where a mysterious masterpiece, a mountain of money, a mourning millionaire, and a slightly mad painter lead her down a twisting trail of illusion and confusion. Watching her every move is an artist of evil, who is all too willing, eager, and able to color Jessica blood red...
