Burnt Sienna

By David R. Morrell (Electronic Book, 2001)
Once Chase Malone waged war. Now he creates beauty, living as a reclusive painter in Mexico. Until a rich man hires Chase to do his wife's portrait. And Chase finds out what beauty is really all about. . . . Derek Bellasar is an international arms merchant who lives in a fortresslike mansion on the Riviera. Sienna is his wife and the woman whose incredible beauty Chase Malone must somehow capture on canvas. There's only one problem: Every time Bellasar has one of his wives painted, she dies. Suddenly, Chase is fighting a one-man battle against Bellasar and a private army of highly trained killers. At stake is Sienna's life--and more. Because the CIA has been using Chase to keep a blockbuster biological arms deal from going down. And with a man's evil threatening to devastate the world, Chase Malone must save a woman, save his life, and practice the art of war.
