After serving time in a foreign prison for art theft, Kirby McKinney returns home only to be tempted by one last museum heist. 

And this time, the job is personal. 

But the simple heist goes awry when she pushes her luck and runs into the artist-in-residence, sending her stumbling into a murder mystery that forces her to confront her past. Once the truth begins to peel away, Kirby finds herself in the center of the case and at the hands of a deranged artist. In a race against time, she must find the killer before anyone else she loves winds up in the next composition.

Prompt 4. When something tragic happens, it's often said we lose a piece of ourselves. How far would you go to find those lost parts of yourself in order to be whole again?

And also:
58. "If we're assigning blame, then this is your fault for leaving me alone with explosives in the first place."
