September 08, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
September 8, 2016 - Behind the Canvas, a new book by Philip M. Herman, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Detective Jason Talbot is no stranger to the seedy side of the art world. His work on the Richmond, Virginia, art squad has given him an up-close view of the lengths criminals will go to to get what they want. But this time it's even more personal for Talbot. Not only does he have his own mystery to solve in Richmond, but also a mystery in Paris involving his heiress girlfriend, Charlotte Bradford. Behind the Canvas, the second Jason Talbot novel, looks at the effects the Nazis had on the art world during their control of Paris in WWII and how it's not always easy to distinguish between the good guys and bad guys.
