One of the Faberges believed to be lost to history is recovered. Matt Kile finds himself surrounded by devious international criminals while trying to protect the safety of both the fabulous Faberge and its (apparent) rightful owner. A Matt Kile mystery wrapped in intrigue, murder, romance and humor.
