“The Shadow Box” is Luanne Rice’s latest novel. Artist Claire Beaudry Chase is attacked and left for dead. Her prime suspect is her husband, Griffith, who is running for governor. Before the attack, Claire had been preparing an exhibit of her shadow boxes – one of which clearly accuses Griffith of a violent crime committed 25-years ago. She is certain that her husband and his powerful supporters would kill her to stop the truth from getting out. “The Shadow Box” is also available on CD.
