Publisher's Summary

RITA Award Winner, Best Romantic Suspense, 1995

When Dora Conroy, a Philadelphia antiques dealer, purchases a curious selection of auction items - objects she judges to be humorous novelties - she unknowingly becomes the deadly focus of an international smuggler.

When robberies and death surround her merchandise, Dora seeks help from her intriguing upstairs tenant, former cop Jed Skimmerhorn. They discover a shadowy path leading across the continent to the smuggler, a man who will stop at nothing to recover his hidden riches. Like the treasures he craves, Dora and Jed find they are susceptible to his crushing grasp.

Loved it!!

I read a lot of Nora Roberts and I find them all good. However, once in a while, one of her books really gets to me. This is one of those. I loved the characters, the storyline and the narrator. Ahhhhh.... Next Nora Roberts book please!!

YES YES YES

You know they are going to end up together - why else write about it however...

Very interesting and independant characters, very interesting and insightful read.

Sandra Burr is also really great.

Again... couldn't put this book down - finished it in 2 days!

Thank you for keeping my weekends alive - especially the boring ones.

Hidden Riches

Any additional comments?

Liked the book and story but not the RECORDING as there is a lot of back ground noise starting about 3/4 the way through the first part of this book. Very distracting and when i asked if there was a better quality recording of the book i got a email back from Audible full of questions to be answered. I can't be bothered going through it all so am disappointed in the support from Audible and Audio quality of the first part of this book. I have never had an Audio problem before, just wanted a better quality recording or perhaps my credit back. :(

Good easy listening story, has it all, little suspense, little romance. Worth reading.

Not great

I typically enjoy Nora Roberts but this book is set in modern times while the narrator’s voice belongs in an old fashioned book. Pride and Prejudice would be a great book for her voice just not anything recent. I couldn’t even finish listening, had to turn it off.

Couldn't finish this one...

I made it about half way through, and I like the story, know what to expect from the author.... but I couldn't handle the narration. And it's not that it is bad, but the voices she used for many of the characters just didn't sit well with me. I would be pulled out of the story and get lost in trying to analyze what bothered me so much about how she was delivering that character's lines. I kept trying to move past it but couldn't. I didn't listen to a sample before picking this up, so the fault is mine. :-(

Spot on

This is certainly one of those cases where narrator and story were made for each other. The different characters and the humour characters you along the tale, until the last word has been spoken.

Total enjoyment

Not the best

By no means my favourite Nora Roberts book.
The narrator put me to sleep faster than a Mogadon
