Georgia: A Novel of Georgia O'Keeffe
Tripp’s latest novel (after Game of Secrets, 2011) is a fictionalized biography of artist Georgia O’Keeffe. In 1916, O'Keeffe was a shy art teacher from Texas when she traveled to New York to meet Arthur Stieglitz, the famous photographer and art dealer who discovered and exhibited her paintings. Their connection was instant, and O’Keeffe became Stieglitz’s mistress and muse while he encouraged her art. But when Stieglitz exhibited scandalous nude photographs of her, they overshadowed her identity and influenced the art world’s perception of her paintings--until she found a life in New Mexico.
No Shred of Evidence: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery
It’s 1920, and Inspector Ian Rutledge (last seen in A Fine Summer’s Day, 2015) has been sent to the Cornish countryside to investigate a case of attempted murder. Victoria Grenville, her neighbor Elaine St. Ives, and two visitors from London are boating on the River Carmel when they see Victoria’s suitor, Harry Saunders, in trouble in his own boat. During their rescue attempt, Harry is hit with an oar, winds up in a coma, and later dies. The four young women insist they were trying to save him from drowning, not kill him, but witness Bradford Trevose thinks otherwise. It’s up to Inspector Rutledge to solve an older, much darker mystery from the past to clear their names.
Only a week after Jean Taylor’s husband, Glen, stumbled in front of a London bus and died, journalists are begging for the exclusive rights to her story. That’s because four years ago, Glen was accused of kidnapping 2-year-old Bella Elliott from her Southampton backyard. Even when detectives revealed evidence of Glen’s shameful secrets, Jean remained the steadfast and faithful wife. But Bella is still missing, and tabloid reporter Kate Waters is determined to find out what Jean really knows. A superb debut.
