About The Book
The head of Goya has been missing for centuries. The most valuable – and dangerous – relic the world has even known.
When the art historian, Leon Golding, finds Goya’s skull his rivals gather: a ruthless female collector in New York; an immoral scion of the notorious Ortega family; and a killer hired by the most dangerous man in London.
All of them are after the skull – and the man who has it.
