"The most soulful novel of her extraordinary career - the most urgent, the most haunting, the most satisfying."

- A.J. FINN, #1New York TimesBestselling Author

When V.I. Warshawski gets word that her close friend and mentor Lotty Herschel's nephew has become a murder suspect, the legendary detective will do everything to save him. The cops found Felix Herschel's name and phone number on the unknown victim's remains, but Felix insists he doesn't know why. Soon Vic discovers that the dead man was obsessed with Middle Eastern archeology - the first clue in a bewildering case.

But the trouble multiplies when Vic's long-lost niece, Reno, goes missing. Reno is harboring a secret that may cost her her life. V.I. can hear the clock ticking on her niece's safety and is frantic in her efforts to find her. She won't leave any stone unturned until these very personal cases are cleared - a complex investigation that will entangle the Russian mob, ISIS backers, rogue ICE agents, a nefarious corporation preying on the poor, and a shady network of stock scams and stolen antiquities stretching from Chicago to the East Indies and the Middle East.

"A multi-layered mystery with lots of moving parts that all come together in a triumphant moment of truth and justice."

- NELSON DeMILLE, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
