Book Description

Marcie Jackson, now a private investigator, is on a new case. At the home of her late great-aunt, she learns of the mystery of a missing young woman, who had previously lived in the same house as her great-aunt. She is hired to find out what happened. Bodies begin showing up in the backyard and she finds the brutal crime scene in the attic. Even though the murders took place twenty years ago, the killers are still out there. Marcie finds clues, but even they don’t all make sense. She is missing something. Can she find the missing clue before the killer leaves forever, with the best piece of evidence?

4.0 out of 5 stars Better and better 29 Dec. 2012

I've been watching the career of author L. C. Lang for several years now. Her stories keep getting better with each book.

THE PAINTING is a novel in the Marcie Jackson mysteries series. Now Marcie is a private investigator, after her job with the state police has turned sour. Her Great-aunt Maggie, at whose home she spent many happy summer days in her girlhood, has died, and Marcie is sent to clean out the house Maggie had rented for twenty years. The previous owner, a young widow with a seven-year-old deaf-mute son, had disappeared suddenly, and when the current owner--her sister--learns that Marcie is a PI, she hires her to get to the bottom of the story.

I could almost see Marcie patiently ferreting out the clues, one by one, in her search for the truth. Except for the last, elusive fact that would help her solve the mystery. A good tale, indeed, full of art and artifice, sleuthing and shrubbery, and the mysterious "M."

Perfectionists, beware. There ARE several places you will bump into grammatical lapses and a need for more thorough editing, but if you can overlook those in favor of the well-plotted story, you'll come away as satisfied as Marcie by the end of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Painting 6 Oct. 2012

The Painting was a very enjoyable read. Marcie Jackson now a private investigator, is at the home of her great aunt who resently passed away. She is packing up her auntie's belongings so the homeowner can sell the house that had been auntie's rented home for twenty years. The young mother that lived in the house before auntie moved in went missing and her sister now owns the house. She asks Marcie to look into Maura's disappearance as she knows that her sister would never leave her deaf seven year old son and just leave. Where is Maura and where has she been for twenty years. That is the queston that begs to be answered. Marcie starts looking for the true facts and finds a lot more than any of the detectives did all those years ago. L. C. Lang is getting better and did a good job on this one and I feel it was much better than her previous "Deadly Secret" I will be reading "Easy Money" next.

The author keeps you in suspense throughout. Intriguing. The plot is quite complex so very enjoyable. Recommended reading for those who like suspense.
5.0 out of 5 stars A good mystery. 4 Nov. 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The Painting was several mysteries all rolled into one. You didn't know what really happened to Maura. You didn't know what happened to Sanford Welch. Once you find out what happened that created more mysteries. In this nook all but one of my questions were answered I would have liked to know the name of the detective that had worked the case. I do have my ideas. I hope I will someday get an answer to this in one of L C Lang's books.
