Sintesi dell'editore

Chasing Vermeer comes to Harlem in this clever mystery about art, artifice, and the power of community.

Watcher. Shadow. Fugitive.

Harlem is home to all kinds of kids. Jin sees life passing her by from the window of her family's bodega. Alex wants to help the needy one shelter at a time but can't tell anyone who she really is. Elvin's living on Harlem's cold, lonely streets, surviving on his own after his grandfather was mysteriously attacked.

When these three strangers join forces to find out what happened to Elvin's grandfather, their digging leads them to an enigmatic artist whose missing masterpieces are worth a fortune - one that might save the neighborhood from development by an ambitious politician who wants to turn it into Harlem World, a ludicrous historical theme park. But if they don't find the paintings soon, nothing in their beloved neighborhood will ever be the same.

In this remarkable tale of daring and danger, debut novelist Natasha Tarpley explores the way a community defines itself, the power of art to show truth, and what it really means to be home.

Great story!

Great story with plenty of twists and turns. Powerful message of unity and history worth loving and cheering. I will agree with one of the reviewers who talked about the kids lying. That would be my only fault.
