Back of the Book Blurb #38 Challenge

From Sioux's PageSioux offers this challenge.

She posts a picture and you need to imagine it as a graphic for a book. You choose the genre and book title, and then write a blurb that might appear on the back of the book.

The blurb should be 150 words or less (not including the title).
The genre is wide-open.
Each blogger should include their blurb on their own blog, and link back to this post.
Have fun with it. Go to the other posts and comment on the other blurbs. 
You can do fancy techy things with the photo.

(Join in if you dare...! It sounds like fun! I think this would be a lot of fun to do with students especially since they would be expected to write 150 words or less!)

The Case of the Missing Painting

The detectives looked around at the mess in the building. When asked if anything was missing, the owner of the antique store, Annie Ashbey stated that the only thing missing was the crazy painting. Why would anyone pass up all the valuable antiques and only take that painting? She couldn’t get anyone to buy it and usually no one even looked twice at it. Yet, someone had broken in the building, trashed a lot of valuable antiques and then stole the crazy mixed-up painting. The painting had a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge, Howard Hughes, and a scene from Psycho. No one even knew who painted it. What did all of that have in common? Was that painting more valuable than anyone imagined? Was there a secret in the painting? Was the painter someone famous? Read on to find out more about that painting. (145 words)

Pat--I love the idea of a secret being part of the painting. What a clever idea. (And as always, thanks for playing along.)

OOH! Maybe there's something painted UNDER that painting, and the mish-mash was just a ruse to protect the real masterpiece. Or else some birds came in and took it to poop on.
