Abstract:

Maybe it was the chance to make an easy $2,500. Or maybe it was the opportunity to examine a treasure trove of Anasazi pots-or maybe it was just a slow day at the antiques shop that convinced Hubie Schuze to agree to a strange proposition. A reclusive collector wants a confidential appraisal, with one catch: Hubie must be blindfolded and driven to an unknown location by a chauffeur. Sure, it's an odd setup, but what could possibly go wrong? Hubie's nonchalance fades fast when he finds three replicas among the genuine antiquities. Worse, after returning home, he can't seem to find the $2,500 cash that the collector gave him. Incensed at the rip-off, Hubie is determined to recoup the money, but Detective Whit Fletcher interrupts his scheme, dragging him instead to the morgue to identify a John Doe. When the sheet is pulled back, Hubie is shocked to see the body of the unknown art collector. Hubie is not a suspect--yet. But the longer he pursues this mystery, the more tangled he will become in the dead man's shadowy life.
