The blue hammer by Ross Macdonald( Book )

We find veteran private eye Lew Archer at the Santa Teresa home of copper magnate Jack Biemeyer and his wife Ruth. He's been hired to locate a potentially valuable painting that is missing from their residence. This intricately plotted mystery is less a story about stolen artwork or even murder than it is a study of family secrets reaching back over more than a generation. Lost love, jealousy, dysfunctional relationships, homosexuality and substance abuse all play a part in the interesting narrative that unfolds in the pages of this novel

"In his new novel, Macdonald's famous non-hero private eye Lew Archer -- embodiment of cool -- picks his way through the overheated and explosives mazes of a wealthy family's long-hidden secrets. A lost heirloom, a murder that breeds more murder, a boy's life poisoned by a money crime committed before he was born -- these are the elements of The Goodbye Look."--
