Contents: Publisher's Note:
When Renaissance scholar and occasional art dealer Jordan Brooks journeys to Venice to view "Leopardi Madonna," a masterpiece by Santi Raphael, he must discover the truth of whether the painting is a fake or the original, which leads him to his former teacher, Giorgio Sagredo, a group of corrupt art dealers, and into the arms of a young American student.
