The last major work of martyr-suicide Franklin Koenig before his spectacular self-immolation in 1958, Mirror shows up in Manhattan where it sells for $23 million - the highest price ever paid for a post-war painting. The seller, Linda Carey - Koenig's lover in his last tortured months. The buyer, the Modern Art Museum of New York - a dynastic institution as secretive as it is incestuous. But as soon as Mirror enters the collection, questions are raised - and the role of Ellen Lindz, the curator responsible, is thrown into doubt. Her job on the line, Ellen begins to ask questions of her own - and heads for Phoenix, Arizona in search of the one person who can tell her the truth: Linda Carey. It's only when she reaches Phoenix that the pieces fall into place - and Ellen discovers the full horror of what has for so long been kept in the freezing dark - a bloody secret that could blow apart the multi-billion dollar art market. A secret that someone will kill to keep . . .
