In Hidden Riches, Nora Roberts plunges into the exotic and
decadent world of antiques with a story in which possession
is a lethal obsession and a simple mistake leads to a string
of savage murders. At its swirling center is Dora Conroy, a
Philadelphia antiques dealer who buys a curious selection of
auction items - objects she considers humorous novelties for
her inventory. Yet it soon becomes obvious that this
merchandise is a magnet for something sinister; in fact, her
genteel antiques shop becomes the focus of an international
smuggler whose passion for beautiful objects knows no
bounds. As Dora and her intriguing upstairs tenant, former
cop Jed Skimmerhorn, probe into the robberies and deaths
surrounding the mysterious shipment, they discover a shadowy
path leading across the continent to the smuggler, a man who
will stop at nothing to regain his hidden riches. Dora and
Jed find that they, like the treasures the man craves, are
susceptible to his crushing grasp.
Dora Conroy is an antiques dealer who knows the tricks of
the trade. But nothing could prepare her for the deadly
consequences of purchasing a few curiosities at an auction.
Now the target of a ruthless smuggler, Dora turns to her new
neighbor, ex-cop Jed Skimmerhorn, for help. Together they
find that hidden riches can have a most ordinary facade.
