Case of the Duplicitous Pallete

A short story by Ernie Whitenack

Scott Wadsworth, a Boston Attorney and Special Investigator for the State Attorney, is again pulled into international intrigue by the murder of Patricia Curry. Miss Curry unknowingly sells near-perfect copies of paintings stolen from the Duke Charles Museum at Oxford University.
