I needed more from this book. It was pretty straight forward mystery and while I really like a good mystery, I like them to have more to them. Also the ending was too open for me. ( )

An unfinished case is always frustrating for the police, and Detective Chief Inspector Sheldon Hunter is no exception. The murder of a local art gallery owner in Chatfield after a private viewing one night in February 1986 and the theft of the painting on display had Hunter stumped. After months of enquiry, every possible avenue had been checked and checked again, and still the investigation had turned up nothing. No suspects, no murder weapon, no painting and, indeed, no artist. Reluctantly, with no leads to pursue, the case is filed - unsolved. Four years later, however, it seems that not everyone has forgotten the murder. When DCI Hunter receives a series of anonymous letters and phone calls alleging the involvement of a family from a nearby market town in the death, his interest is piqued and he decides to take a look. The Saddler family are well-heeled and an established fixture in the town - unremarkable on the surface but as Hunter digs around he discovers that their son, Ian, is missing and his mystery caller is convinced it has something to do with the artist, Fayne. Can Hunter get to the truth before someone else gets hurt? An enthralling mystery set against the picturesque backdrop of life in a small market town; Private View is a novel that should not be missed!

"As a child growing up in North Carolina, Alice Faye Williams knew that the most important thing her impoverished family lacked was land; as she puts it, "The land, to live on and to cultivate and pass on to my family." But there was no land, and in the end her family moved to New York, where in her late teens Alice Faye became Afeni Shakur, a radicalized, prominent Black Panther. In 1969, she was arrested along with a number of other Black Panthers on suspicion of planning bombings - she spent eleven months on remand before women of all races raised $64,000 in cash to bail her out. She was subsequently acquitted of all charges. While in jail, Afeni Shakur was pregnant with her son, Tupac, who went on to become Tupac Amaru Shakur, a rap megastar until his tragic death in 1996.". "Over the course of a decade, the renowned actress Jasmine Guy has been recording the thoughts of Afeni Shakur. In this unique book, Guy reveals the evolution of the woman through a series of intimate, revealing conversations on themes such as love, race, drugs, music, and of course her son. We see how the impoverished southern girl became a leading light in the Black Panther movement; how drugs brought her low; how her recovery filled her with new hope for herself and the future of black women everywhere; and how the work of her son has served to bring renewed hope and courage to people that this country has too often left behind."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
