Art for fun's sake...

When painter and PI Chris Honeysett is invited to take part in an exhibition at the Bath Arts Academy, where he was once briefly a tutor, it seems like it should be a fairly straightforward event. As soon as he gets there, though, Chris is persuaded against his better judgement to take on a teaching role on a temporary basis, and to help organise the exhibition. But it's not long before all kinds of strange things are happening – mysterious symbols appearing on walls and car

I thought this series was complete with the fifth book in the series...but lo and behold...I discover this sixth book! Was excited to read more about Chris Honeysett, painter and private sleuth. This time Honeysett finds murder and mayhem while teaching at a nearby art school. Where artistic quirky characters abound, where murder doesn't make sense...until of course Chris unravels it all. I really like Helton's writing style...and he makes me want to travel to Bath. ...more

Chris Honeysett is first an artist then a private investigator so reading this novel was informative concerning art and painting and lists of supplies.

Honeysett has been asked to come back to the Bath Arts Academy to teach while he and o ...more

Chris Honeysett is an artist and a private detective but he is less than organised and lives in a very hand to mouth way with his girlfriend who is also involved with Tim his part time employee in the detective agency. When Chris is nearly killed by a runaway car driven by a man who was coming to visit him, he finds himself involved in a strange mystery which leads to him teaching at a private art school, at which he had taught briefly some years before.

I enjoyed the background to this mystery n
