||Setting: Ireland, Europe, and New York City
Irish siblings Malachi, Gideon, and Rebecca Sullivan cherish the family legend of their great-great-grandfather's acquisition of one of the Fates, a trio of priceless, long-separated silver statues. When the Sullivans' Fate is stolen by an unscrupulous New York antiquities dealer, they vow to retrieve the little silver lady, and thus begins a quest that will send them racing across Europe, traveling through Ireland, and dodging killers in New York City. Most importantly, their search for their Fate and her two sister statues brings them into the world of a brilliant female mythology professor, a free-spirited exotic dancer, and a security expert adept at breaking and entering. This diverse sextet must meld their talents in order to thwart their enemy, retrieve the stolen statue, and stay alive while administering their particular brand of justice.
Prolific author Nora Roberts's latest tale of adventure and romance is a nonstop page-turner with quirky heroines, strong heroes, and a delightfully nefarious villainess. Toss in strong Irish, European, and New York settings, interesting secondary characters, and a plot with intriguing twists and turns and the result is romantic suspense at its best. --Lois Faye Dyer
