Vincent Conte is a former NYC cop, now a private investigator. He has cracked some cases, mostly that deal with employee theft from factories and meat-packing plants around the city. But, he is getting bored. He wants a real case; one with some meat to it. And, he gets his wish.

But, as they say, be careful what you wish for. In this case, he is hired by the Duchess of a place referred to as the "Grand Duchy," some very small sovereign country in Europe. His job is to figure out who hired a photo

I picked this up at the library never having heard of Robert Daley, and was quite pleasantly surprised. I would have given this four stars (and I'm quite picky), but two thirds of the way through it stumbled a bit, then, even though it picked up, the ending was really quite silly.
After waiting for years on my shelf this poor book failed to capture my imagination and failed the keep on reading test.

Didn't finish. I thought the character development was very uneven. When the plot line is predictable, this is fatal.

I never thought much of Robert Daley until I read this book--he's a wonderful writer, and this book contains one of the greatest set pieces/action chase scenes I've ever read. Definitely worthwhile.
