Review: Automat by Stephanie Kane

In her latest novel, Automat, author Stephanie Kane returns readers to the world of art, investigation, and murder.

Automat is the second novel featuring Kane's Lily Sparks character, the Conservator of Paintings at the Denver Art Museum. Lily has a unique gift: a perfect eye. Her area of expertise has served her well at the museum, as she's able to visually dissect paintings almost instantaneously, dividing what is original from what has been touched up, embellished, and outright added to works of art. 

In the first Lily Sparks novel, A Perfect Eye, these skills serve the character well in an area that she never could have expected or prepared for: murder. When a killer begins recreating famous works of art through real life homicide, our conservator protagonist is able to use all of her mental acumen and discernment to determine motive, influence, and ultimately identify the killer. 

The second novel, Automat, returns readers once again to the world of high art and murder. The title of the book is also the title of a famous 1927 panting by Edward Hopper, and that piece itself serves as the inspiration for a whole new murder mystery. Can Lily Sparks combine her years of museum expertise with her innate gifts of investigation to expose the killer before they strike again?

The Last Hoorah by Stephen Lackey

It’s hyperbolic, the title I mean. Theaters will reopen, but they may never be the same post pandemic. This summer they attempted a soft reopening and it was truly only for one film; TENET. Christopher Nolan pushed hard, leaning on the contract for the film, to ensure that the film only premiered in theaters, and shockingly the studio responsible for the film, Warner Brothers stood by him. The question is why? Why did this film over all films “require” theatrical viewing? I won’t be spoiling TENET here, but I will attempt to answer the question, and share my own experience seeing the film in an IMAX theater.
