Abstract:

A floozy's murder jump-starts a caper mixing scholarly skullduggery and hard-boiled mayhem. San Francisco frame maker Danny Kestrel has just driven away from a one-night stand with nymphomaniac art patron Renee Knowles when she's bumped off with a single gunshot, leaving him the main suspect in her killing. Danny investigates Renee's dealings in the underground antique trade and immediately runs afoul of crooks convinced that she passed him a secret treasure she finagled in her final days.

Gyrating events eventually lead Danny to an antiquarian text that reveals evidence damning a sixth-century Roman empress for intrigues involving her son and some priceless trinkets, all of which seem to have bearing on Renee's sordid activities.
