About the book…
In this 8th book in the series of Padre books, characters Jimmy Redstone and Angella Martinez, working as insurance company investigators, are tasked to find a valuable missing bronze sculpture known as the Pirate. The trail takes them to the Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh where they become embroiled in the dark underbelly of the international art world where originals and fakes are routinely interchanged and where terrorist money laundering is coordinated by a Mexican drug lord. Wrapped into the mix is the Israeli Mossad on the trail of Holocaust art rumored to contain the assumed names of Nazi war criminals.
