Series: Don Frazier is a wannabe treasure hunter.  He is obsessed with the history of Richard Crane, a man of wide influence at the turn of the 20th century.  He collected Middle Eastern art and was one half of the doomed King-Crane Commission.  When Don uncovers a new, viable clue to Crane’s hidden treasure, his life changes in ways he never anticipated.  Enjoy this fast-paced mystery/thriller/treasure-hunt and learn a little bit of the fraught history of the US-Middle East foreign policy.
