Forty years ago in Italy, a vicious gang of thieves broke into a museum, stole four paintings and murdered an American soldier. In 1989 the paintings resurface - and so do the murderers. Salvatore Cartucci, part-time private eye and owner of The Black Moon Bar, calls on a cadre of America's toughest detectives for a continent-wide investigation. It's a mystery that will impel all of them to uncover the truth behind the paintings' disappearance - and expose one of the most complex art scams of the century. This private eye novel is by FIVE of today's most talented crime writers: Loren D. Estleman (two-time winner of the Shamus award and National Book Award nominee), Ed Gorman (winner of the 1988 Shamus award for best short story), W. R. Philbrick (a hard-boiled novelist "with a 20-20 eye and a sharp ear for dialogue"), Robert J. Randisi (founder of the Private Eye Writers of America), and L. J. Washburn (winner of the 1988 Shamus award for best paperback novel).
