As in Teeter-Totter between Lust and Murder, this novel explores the possible links between some of the rich elites and criminal elements within the tri-state area surrounding NYC. The artworks involved are from a heist in Boston, and their use as collateral for the collector's terrible business is a surprise to the two detectives. Can they prove their case against him? Can they recover the paintings?
(Two minor characters, Scotland Yard Art and Antiques Inspector Esther Brookstone, and Interpol agent Bastiann van Coevorden, from Aristocrats and Assassins, help the two detectives on this case. Look for them both in Rembrandt's Angel, an offshoot of this series.)

About the Author
If you’re reading this, thank you for finding me. Not many people do. Maybe it’s because my name is too common—I thought once about using a nom de plume, but didn’t. Maybe it’s because I don’t get many reviews (you could change that a wee bit). I know you have many books and authors to choose from, so I’m honored and humbled that you are considering or have read one of mine. You’re here on Smashwords because you love to read. Me too. OK, maybe you’re here to give someone an entertaining book—that’s fine too. I love to tell stories, so either way, you’ll be purchasing some exciting fiction, each book unique and full of action, characters, scenes, and themes. Some are national, others international, and some are mixed; some are in the mystery/suspense/thriller category, others sci-fi, and some are mixed-genre. I started telling stories at an early age, making my own comic books before I started school and writing my first novel the summer I turned thirteen—little of that remains (did I hear a sigh of relief?). I collected what-ifs and story ideas for years while living in Colombia and different parts of the U.S. (I was born in California and eventually settled on the East Coast after that sojourn in South America), and seeing a bit of the world at scientific events and conferences, always mindful of what should be important to every fiction writer—the human condition. Fiction can’t come alive—even sci-fi—without people (they might be ETs in the case of sci-fi, of course). I started publishing what I'd written about fifteen years ago—short stories, novellas, and novels—we’d become empty-nesters and I was still in my old day-job. I published my first three novels during that time. Now I’m a full-time writer. My wife and I moved from Boston to the NYC area a while back, so both cities can be found in some of the crime novels. You can find more information about me at my website: http://stevenmmoore.com. I’m also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/authorStevenMMoore; plua Google+ and Goodreads. My website has also has a list of all my books as well as PDFs (short story collections and novellas) free for the asking, My mantra has always been the following: If I can entertain one reader with each story, that story is a success. But maybe I can do better than that. After all, you found me! In libris libertas!
