The Collection: A Matt Friedrich Art Caper by Lance Charnes


He’s always been good at being bad. When he decides to match wits with the Mob on its turf, will he push his luck a shade past survival?

Matt Friedrich figures there’s no way out. Half a million in debt after doing time for fraud, the former art dealer would do anything to ditch his post-prison barista job for something that pays actual money. So when a shady contact from his past offers him a trial gig at her semi-legal, highly profitable agency, he can’t say no… even if it risks his parole and his life.

Handcuffed to a brusque new partner who doesn’t appreciate his people skills, Matt finds himself in Milan on the trail of a man he tried to put away with his plea deal. But when the paintings they’re pursuing catch them in a crossfire with the Calabrian mafia, the experienced swindler may find his second chance comes at a fatal price.

Will the payoff for Matt’s long con be delivered in cash or corpses?

Add a gritty blend of international atmosphere, street savvy, art world politics and processes, and criminal interests to the action-packed saga of a ticking time bomb and you have a multi-faceted, well-detailed story that’s hard to put down and highly recommended for detective story and intrigue readers looking for something refreshingly original…” — Recommended Reading, Donovan’s Literary Services

The mystery has enough twists and turns — with the characters keeping plenty of secrets — to keep the reader guessing until the very end… A charming start to what promises to be an intriguing series.” — The BookLife Prize
