Patti ... I almost bought a copy of this book last year but decided against it for a reason i cannot recall now. I remember the Dana Andrews/Jean Tierney Movie of the same name. Haven't seen it in decades but i recall it was well done. Story of obsession triggered by a painting of a murdered lady and testimony from friends. I'd like to hear your opinion of the book when you finish reading it.

A great film and theme song...'a name that you never quite...recall...'

I love your display of covers! I'm copying your evolution of book covers for tomorrow's FORGOTTEN BOOKS feature. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

There were so many covers of this one using the movie that I didn't include. I am almost done but one observation was the movie was more romantic. Maybe the theme song and Gene Tierney helped. Not that the books isn't great too.

I'm optimistic that you'll really enjoy it, Patti, as I did.
