Overview

Peyton's Fate Depends on the Unlikely Pawn in a Quarter-Century-Old Crime

When Agent Peyton Cote discovers a thirteen-year-old Ukrainian boy along the Canadian border, she has no idea who placed him there or why. And Victor Tankov, on his deathbed in Russia, likes it that way. By giving the boy political asylum, Peyton sets in motion a plan twenty-five years in the making, leading back to the world's largest art heist at Boston's Gardner Museum.

In his most ambitious work yet, D.A. Keeley blends one of the most famous crimes of the century with the ongoing Ukrainian crisis, creating an action-packed international thriller. As events unfold, Peyton hunts for a painting worth $150 million and the criminal masterminds who are determined to sell it no matter the cost.

Praise:

" A] solid third Peyton Cote novel."--Publishers Weekly

" A] superbly crafted, taut mystery . . . Keeley has yet another fast-paced, suspenseful and wholly believable mystery hit."--Kennebec Journal

"Timely and gripping."--The Recorder

Keeley’s solid third Peyton Cote novel (after 2015’s Fallen Sparrow) finds the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent stationed in Maine near the Canadian border. To Peyton’s surprise, Aleksei Vann, a 13-year-old Ukrainian boy, surrenders to her after crossing into the U.S. Aleksei says that after pro-Russian separatists bombed his family’s house in Donetsk and badly wounded his mother, his father sent him on a boat to Nova Scotia, hoping to get him to his aunt, who lives in Maine. The case attracts the attention of State Department officials, who fear that Aleksei could be but the first of a wave of Ukrainian refugees seeking asylum from Canada. Peyton is determined to get the truth about the details of Aleksei’s journey by identifying who got him to the border and to ascertain whether a human-trafficking ring was involved. Keeley does a good job of centering the action on a nonviolent crime, but a twist involving a real-life art theft may strike some readers as a stretch. (June)
