Fifteen years ago the Morse cousins left the family estate after the thief of a cursed Goya painting disappears. The cousins has been summoned back to Owl’s Point. But when Teresa arrives she finds her grandfather dead. It looks like a murder and out of the four cousins, Teresa is the one that is going to find out what happened to both her grandfather and the painting. But this is one messed up family. Kenny, James, and Audrey have a load of issues and Teresa has a medical condition that she is worried that she has inherited. She seems to be the most honest out of the bunch but she can be unreliable. It seems money is the key factor in both the robbery and murder but the question is who did it and why. This story reminds me of a gothic mystery. Its dark, dreary, you have money grubbers, mental illness, and a cursed family and painting. There were several characters to keep track of but I found that I didn’t really get to know enough of any of them to really care what was happening to them. But morbid curiosity did have me finishing to book to find out who was the killer/thief. This is not a bad story, just one that didn’t really draw me in. I think it will be one that you will either like or not. I received The Black Painting from Harper Collins for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
