Benjamin Franklin becomes involved in murder in the art world. In the third of the Franklin mysteries set in mid-18th century London, the Philadelphia luminary is approached by a distraught lady. A diamond provided for a portrait disappears. She seeks help in recovering the diamond even as the artist puts her off. Murder, of course, follows. Another entertaining story in this series, enlisting Franklin as an amateur sleuth in London, when cops were simply local watchmen unequipped and often unwilling to investigate complicated crime and when Franklin was being stalled by the heirs of William Penn who were refusing to allow themselves, as proprietors of the colony Franklin represented, to be taxed. Lots of fun to be had as Franklin pursues his crime-fighting pastime. ( )
