Stealing with Style
By Emyl Jenkins
When rare and valuable pieces mysteriously start showing up at the local Salvation Army store—tucked into an oven mitt, hidden in a quilt—expert appraiser Sterling Glass is brought in to evaluate their worth. As she researches the origins of a rare urn, one strange detail leads to another. Before long she uncovers an intricate plot involving a slew of antique treasures, the oldest families of Leemont, some sophisticated scammers, and shifty associates at New York’s most prestigious auction houses. Add to that one elderly man trying to preserve his family’s treasured collection of bronze and ivory Art Deco sculptures, and Sterling finds herself tangled in a web of greed, deceit, and danger.
