One hundred and fifteen chapters of action, romance, fun, and the unexpected. The book that made the Broughtons famous, revised to meet their current fabulous writing abilities. The orginal was good, but now it's even better. Meet Ashling Pane, a former FBI agent turned free lance recovery agent, primarily for insurance companies when high value items are stolen from clients. She charges high fees so she isn't bothered with run of the mill cases. Friends in high places help her recovery efforts at times. This time, she's on the trail of a stolen Stradivarius violin. The case takes more twists and turns than a Mississippi back road. In the process, she saves the life of her friend, now President of the United States, and gets on the trail of some very pricey stolen diamonds, and some enriched uranium destined for terrorist suitcase size nuclear bombs. It's not an easy case, leads are nearly nonexistent, until Ash in her inevitable way breaks the case, and a few heads wide open. Ash Pane despises those that prey on others, to her way of thinking this puts most elected officials and petty bureaucrats in the same boat with the criminal element, she loves to put them in their place, though with many criminals that place is usually the hospital or pushing up daises. Join Ash on her quest to set the world right, one little bit at a time.
