In 1990, $300 million worth of paintings were stolen from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in what remains one of the greatest unsolved art thefts of the twentieth century. Now, nearly twenty years later, the case threatens to break wide open. Members of Boston's criminal underground are turning up dead, and the M. O. suggests IRA training. When Scott Finn learns that one of his clients, Devon Malley, was part of the heist, he's quickly drawn into the crossfire.

A good light read, fast moving, with interesting but fairly one-dimensional characters. Although it is based on a real event, the subsequent fictional story requires a fair bit of suspension of dibelief. For example, the motivation of the prime character, Finn is very sketchy; likewise the willingness of Bass to confide in Finn is hard to believe and the behavior of Porter is inexplicable. Nevertheless, Hosp succeeds in making us care about Sally and admire her toughness in the face of adversity and the story holds our attention to the end.
