Maybe no one liked Del Gilbert a whole lot, not the men he ruthlessly did business with, not the women who discovered his other lovers, not even his partner in the Gilbert and Blake literary agency - me.

Bradley Warren had lost something very valuable--something that belonged to someone else: a rare thirteenth-century Japanese manuscript called the Hagakure.
