(A Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn Mystery)
The Countess Ouspenska, expert forger of Byzantine icons, tells Max Bittersohn that an old acquaintance, Bartolo Arbalest - aka the "Resurrection Man" - has set up an exclusive art restoration business. Meanwhile, in a series of events, valuable objets d'arts are stolen from the homes of Boston's wealthiest citizens...shortly after their owners have them restored. Then George Protherie is gored to death with an ancient spear during a burglary in which his set of solid-gold Indian ceremonial candlesticks vanishes. And it comes as no surprise to Max that all the restoration work is being done by the secretive Arbalest. As Max looks into Arbalest's background, he discovers that Protherie was guarding an array of secrets that stretch back to his days as an importer of oriental antiquities.
