'A dazzling, unexpected and haunting masterpiece' Daily Mail
'A work of genius... Stunning' Daily Express

Jerome Morval has been found dead in the stream that runs through the gardens at Giverny, where Monet did his famous paintings.

In Jerome's pocket is a postcard of Monet's 'Water Lilies' with the words: Eleven years old. Happy Birthday.

Entangled in the mystery are three women: a young painting prodigy, the seductive village schoolteacher and an old widow who watches over the village from a mill by the stream.

All three of them share a secret.
But what do they know about Jerome's death?
And what is the connection to the mysterious 'Black Water Lilies', a rumoured masterpiece by Monet that has never been found?
