A group of criminals in 1946 pull off the heist of the century, stealing a dozen priceless works of art from a Boston museum. But while the thieves get caught, the art is never found. Forty years later, the last surviving thief gets out of jail and goes hunting for the loot, involving some innocent college students in his dangerous plan - and thirty years after that, in the present day, the former college kids, now all grown up, are drawn back into danger as the still-missing art tempts a deadly new generation of treasure hunters.

Despite the seeming Mickey Spillane-type cover, inside hides a whirlwind tour of a once grand hotel cum whorehouse cum college student dorm cum rehabbed condo. Little triads of the story (1946, 1986, and 2014) focus on attempts to find a treasure trove of stolen high-end paintings... and solve accumulating piles of homicides. The author's first novel and an accomplishment.
