“Go away,” the painter snarled when Kari tried to see what was on his canvas. She and Lucas were at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and the guy’s easel was set up in front of one of Rembrandt’s famous Lucretia paintings. Something in this guy’s voice gave Kari the creeps. She had no problem following his instruction; she never wanted to see him again.

But a year later, she did see him again in London. Walking through the National Gallery, Kari heard a familiar snarl. It was the same guy, and he was copying from another Rembrandt. Was it just a coincidence? If so, why was he in disguise?

Using the kind of ingenuity and determination that only two teenage girls could come up with, Kari and Lucas embark on an international adventure to figure out who this mystery man is and what he’s up to. But neither is prepared for what they find. Suddenly what began as a madcap pursuit becomes deadly serious. Will they risk their lives in the name of art?

    " This was a cute middle grade story. It was a nice mystery with well-rounded action. The two main characters were strong female leads. I found it pretty predictable but I think the tween girls who want something other than a book with love in it will really enjoy it. The dialouge was well suited to teenagers. It was also kind of educational with little facts about the world thrown in. "

    " This book gets three stars for the unusual subject (a favourite around here), but two stars for the writing. "

    " It's a fun middle-grades mystery. Parents should be aware that Lucretia is raped and commits suicide--that's the story behind Rembrandt's paintings. My niece loved the book because the refers to the Minneapolis Institutes of Art which we visited. "
