This was my first book by this author and I was delighted with it. What a great read. I am looking forward to reading more in this great series. Lt. Bill Donovan has a passion for antiquities. So the Police Commissioner gives him his ticket to the opening of the Silk Road Exhibit at the museum. Billionaire Paolo Lucca has brought back a huge collection of artifacts from the ancient Silk Road. The gala openining is on and Bill Donovan is enjoying meeting all the VIP's present. Then just as the tour is getting started, Paolo is found stabbed to death. There are quite an assortment of suspects and Bill must sort through them to find the killer. There is the gorgeous super model wife of the victim, the victims partner, Mideast fundamentalists and Russian mobsters; just to name a few.
