The two sisters, writing under the name Hailey Lind, wrote three excellant books about former art forger, Annie Kincaid.  Do any of you know if they have written any more in the series?  By the way these are fiction and mysteries.

The books are "Feint of Art', 'Shooting Gallery' and 'Brush with Death'.

Please if you have answers or know how I could find out please let me know.  I have tried "Stop Your Killin Me" already

According to their website, they have only written three books (the ones you listed) and the series is going on "hiatus". Apparently, there are two new series coming out via a different publisher and the first book will be released in June or July (I can't remember) this summer. I got this info from linking to the author's website from SYKM.

Is the series left hanging at book 3? I read the 2nd book (shooting gallery) thinking it was the 1st..now I have the 1st to go back and read..I hate it when a series is left hanging, you know, as far as the relationships and side stuff going on...

The publisher that released the first three in the series said they won't publish any more (hopefully they'll find someone else to publish it!  I loved that series).  They have a new series starting though - Secondhand Spirits: A Witchcraft Mystery :: Juliet Blackwell.

I finished up Brush with Death a few weeks ago and just got Feint of Art. I hate hearing that there are only three - I love them. Thanks for the info on their new series. I'll have to check those out.

If you like mysteries with art and artists, there's a bibliography in 'AZ Murder Goes... Artful' edited by Barbara Peters. I've found lots of possibilities for reading matter there. I especially like Nicholas Kilmer's series that's centered in Boston, and Iain Pears' series about art dealers and the art-theft police in Italy.
