The Face on the Wall
A Homer Kelly MysteryLarge Print - 1999
Children's book illustrator Annie Swann has built her dream house, where she's painting a thirty-five-foot wall with a rich, complex mural of fairy tales and folklore. But again and again--however often she paints it out--there appears on the wall a mysterious, eerie face. When Annie finds her tenants' retarded eight-year-old son lying dead beneath it, and his yuppie parents about to sue her for all she's worth, it's clearly a case for her uncle, Homer Kelly. Can Homer banish the wickedness from Annie's paradise, save her masterpiece, and scent out a cold-blooded murderer? Jane Langton's elegant prose and beguiling line drawings tell a tale of good and evil more than worthy of the Brothers Grimm.
