Read in January, 2008

Sweeney St. George, an art historian concerned with the art of death (anything from Egyptian funerary art to the memorial displays of flowers and teddy bears that people put up at crash sites), has curated an exhibit at the museum associated with her university. During the opening a woman is killed and a precious Egyptian artifact is almost -- but not quite -- stolen. There seems to be a connection to a previous museum robbery that was 20 years earlier. Sweeney investigates on her own and also with police detective Tim Quinn, whom we've met in earlier books. She also has unresolved issues in her private life. This is a very good series and I hope there will be many more books in it.
