With a priceless collection at stake...Is everything for the taking?

It had taken centuries for Max Bannister’s family to acquire their treasures, and now he’s been asked to risk his collection as bait for a master criminal. For his own reasons, Max allows a public exhibition, and to protect the family fortune he must rely on the skills of his half brother—a world-class security expert—and his smart and savvy exhibit director, Morgan West.

But almost immediately, Morgan comes face-to-face with the mysterious Quinn, Interpol’s most wanted thief for the past decade—and a man who makes it very clear he has an eye on the Bannister collection. And if that’s not enough, Morgan begins to realize that she’s surrounded by secrets and lies, and that someone very close to Max is moving behind the scenes, intent on murder as well as robbery...someone whose ultimate plan threatens to ruin them all.

The book is okay & won't bore you to tears. That is you'll probably won't remember the book as well after you finish it. The juicy part is the relationship between Wolfe & Storm. The relationship between Morgan & the cat burglar, Quinn, is okay, but goes nowhere even as the book wraps up. The villain just seems to come out of nowhere & is easily handled by the good guys. The author loved to use the phase "(so & so cradled the receiver" after the character just finished a call with someone. She must have used it 10-15 times I swear! One more annoying thing is that throughout the whole book, it keeps going on & on about updating the security of this museum that's about to hold this rare one of a kind collection YET we never see how advanced this new state of the art security for the museum really is! What a let down. :(
