POISONED PALETTE is Jill Paterson's sixth  book in her fascinating Fitzjohn Mystery series. 

"An enthusiastic crowd gathered at Lyrebird Lodge in the Blue Mountains on that crisp autumn morning, all anxious to acquire one of Florence Fontaine’s much sought after paintings. However, the only art on one visitor’s mind is the art of murder.

Detective Chief Inspector Fitzjohn, unwittingly drawn into the case, launches his investigation that reveals a web of past and present jealousy, deceit and revenge, at a time when his own life is unravelling before his eyes.

Meanwhile, Claire Reynolds, Florence’s business manager and organiser of the event, finds herself entangled in the police inquiry as evidence of her involvement is established. Traumatised, Claire is blind to the peril that surrounds her."

Jill Paterson is best known for her popular Fitzjohn mysteries. The first book in the series, The Celtic Dagger, was published in 2010 by New Holland Publishers after Jill entered the 2008 New Holland Publishers & NSW Writers Centre Genre Fiction Award. Since that time, through Amazon, she has independently published its second edition along with four further books in the series.

Jill has also authored two non-fiction books entitled Self Publishing-Pocket Guide and Writing-Painting A Picture With Words.

Jill lives in Australia with her musician husband and bossy cat, Fergus. Her favourite pastimes when not writing are painting and photography.
