Inspired by the true story of the biggest art theft of the twentieth century, bestselling author David Hosp returns with his latest blockbuster thriller featuring attorney Scott Finn.
In the early morning hours of March 18, 1990, two men dressed as police officers entered Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, tied up the guards, and escaped with 500 million dollars' worth of paintings. The heist provoked a massive search for both the thieves and the lost masterpieces. But the paintings never surfaced and the mystery remained unsolved. Now, almost twenty years later, the case threatens to break wide open.
When attorney Scott Finn agrees to help an old friend from Southie, Devon Malley, he has no idea of the trouble he is bringing upon himself. Members of Boston's criminal underworld start turning up dead, and the M.O. of the attacks suggests the involvement of someone trained by the IRA. But when Finn learns of Malley's role in the heist, he's quickly drawn into the crossfire, and into the renewed hunt for the missing artwork . . . A hunt that may cost Finn and his colleagues their lives.
In 1990, $300 million worth of paintings were stolen from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Now, nearly 20 years later, the case threatens to break wide open, as attorney Scott Finn learns that one of his clients was part of the heist.
