Adult Fiction ROBBINS
Summary: Art investigator Madison Dupre knew the offer was too good to be true: $20,000 for a quick trip to Dubai, the fantastic Arabian Nights city on the Persian Gulf.  The call came from Sir Henri Lipton, a man who was supposed to be dead-and who she sincerely had hoped was burning in hell because he had ruined her career before his violent "demise."nbsp; He told her only one tantalizing thing about the piece of art: "Let's just say it's a couple thousand years old and was buried with Christ."nbsp; The fact the offer came from a man wanted on three continents for art looting was fair warning that there would be a catch. But with credit collectors and an avaricious landlord pounding at her door, Madison listened when the devil whispered magic words in her ear: $20,000- cash - upfront.  There was a catch, of course.  A number of them.  Sir Henri was up to his neck in conspiracies and needed someone to deflect the danger onto-not to mention frame for the most audacious art theft in history.nbsp; Dubai, a city that has been called Las Vegas on steroids, would just be the first stop for Madison on a quest that takes her to an ancient Mesopotamian city, the dark streets of exotic Istanbul, Venice at Carnival time, and a cathedral where the most sacred object of Christendom is stored.nbsp; Along the way, she finds romance in the arms of a Russian agent who she doesn't trust-and can't resist.nbsp;
