The heist was legendary, still talked about twenty years
after the priceless paintings disappeared from one of
Boston's premier art museums. Most thought the art was
lost forever, buried deep, sold off overseas, or, worse,
destroyed as incriminating evidence. But when paint chips
from the most valuable piece stolen, Gentlemen in Black
by a Spanish master, arrives at the desk of a Boston
journalist, the museum finds hope and enlists Spenser's
Soon the cold art case thrusts Spenser into the shady
world of black market art dealers, aged Mafia bosses, and
old vendettas. A five-million-dollar-reward by the
museum's top benefactor, an aged, unlikable Boston
socialite, sets Spenser and pals Vinnie Morris and Hawk
onto a trail of hidden secrets, jailhouse confessions,
and decades-old murders.
Set against the high-society art scene and the low-life
back alleys of Boston, this is classic Spenser doing what
he does best.
