Descripción o resumen: A Painting. The last major work of martyr-suicide Franklin Koenig before his spectacular self-immolation in 1958, Mirror shows up in Manhattan where it sells for $23 million-the highest price ever paid for a post-war painting. The seller, Linda Carey-Koenig's lover in his last tortured months. The buyer, the Modern Art Museum of New York-a dynastic institution as secretive as it is incestuous. A question. But as soon as Mirror enters the collection, questions are raised-and the role of Ellen Lindz, the curator responsible, is thrown into doubt. Her job on the line, Ellen begins to ask questions of her own-and heads for Phoenix, Arizona in search of the one person who can tell her the truth: Linda Carey. A journey. What is the truth behind the layers of lies? It's only when she reaches Phoenix that the pieces fall into place-and Ellen discovers the full horror of what has for so long been kept in the freezing dark-a bloody secret that could blow apart the multi-billion dollar art market. A secret that someone will kill to keep.
