Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Vivian Brazier never thought life as an art photographer would include shooting headshots for aspiring male actors or nightly wake-up calls to snap photos of grisly crime scenes. After shooting crime scene photos of a famous actress, the latest victim of the "Dagger Killer," Vivian notices eerie similarities to the crime scenes of previous Dagger Killer victims -- details that lead Vivian to become a target herself. Nick Sundridge has always been able to "see" things that others can't. His talent makes him a recluse but a brilliant investigator. As the only one with the ability to help, Nick is sent to protect Vivian. Together, they discover the Dagger Killer has ties to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood royalty and high society.

    *Starred Review* Snapping pictures of crime scenes isn't art, but it does pay the bills. At least that is what photojournalist Vivian Brazier tells herself as she hustles to sell her photographs to newspapers in between working on her photography portfolio. When Vivian's artistic training prompts her to spot an important clue in some of the crime scene photos taken of the Dagger Killer's victims, however, it puts her squarely in the focus of a very determined murderer. When private investigator Nick Sundridge subsequently turns up on her doorstep with orders to protect her, Vivian quickly discovers what an effective team she and Nick make, on and off the case. Close Up, the latest picture-perfect installment in Quick's 1930s-set Burning Cove series (Tightrope, 2019) is another thoroughly entertaining marriage of spine-tingling suspense with sophisticated and sexy romance. Put this together with a plot spiced with a dash of the paranormal, writing kissed with a surfeit of delectably sharp wit, and a cast of characters that includes a clever dog who could give Rin Tin Tin a run for the money, and you have all the required elements for another best-seller for the redoubtable, remarkable Ms. Quick.
