Marty Schott is having a very bad day. His dreams of wealth are dying along with his struggling startup. His bank account is empty. His wife is threatening to leave him. Marty and his business partners have pinned their hopes on a meeting with a new investor at a fishing cabin on the slopes of Mt Hood. Instead, they’re held at gunpoint by a Russian killer. When he murders their newest business partner in front of them, Marty and Bo are plunged into a dangerous game that could cost them everything.

To save their lives, the two friends bargain for time to find and return ten million dollars and a mysterious missing painting the killer claims they stole. There’s only one problem. They don’t have any idea what he’s talking about. The only man who might know is their dead partner, Nico, who won’t be spilling his secrets now.

Nico was a paradox, a small-time art dealer with big-time money. He’d come to them with cash to invest, connections in the art world, and a creative idea. Maybe they should have asked Nico more questions - but Marty and Bo needed the money. Now, they have to navigate a web of lies, untangling the connections between Nico and a strip club owner, an aging artist, a bogus baron, and a talented forger.

Their frantic search will uncover a web of greed and deception - and a painting that might be the world’s most valuable missing masterpiece.
