Overview

The first adventure begins at a Tacoma, Washington, auction house where a three-shell mahogany kneehole desk bearing the label of the 18th century Rhode Island craftsman, John Townsend, is exposed as a brilliant forgery. When Wally Winchester, an expert in Gustav Stickley’s works and the Arts and Crafts movement, travels north into rural British Columbia’s Vancouver Island to interview the tainted consignor, he pulls at a thread that could unravel a global scheme to flood the antique marketplace with high class architectonic fakes. Teamed up with a feisty lady neighbor from Camano Island and a Russian-born cultural theft investigator from UNESCO, Wally comes face to face with an international criminal organization bent on silencing him and his entourage. The murder weapon of choice—the back oak bar to a Stickley Morris chair!
