Summary
"Determined to redeem her father, a discredited art collector, and to one-up her unfaithful fiancé museum curator, Anna hurls herself headlong into Mexico's underground art world"--
Summary
It begins when a meth-addicted grave robber digs up the death mask of Montezuma, setting off a violent struggle for its possession. There is the drug lord who employs him, who would kill for that mask. The expat American collector, sinister and possibly mad, for whom masks are almost a fetish. There is the respected curator who, for a fee, will provide provenances for his country’s looted artifacts. And his long-suffering housekeeper—deeply religious, a lesbian in a culture of machismo, who despises he rpatron. There is the young painter Salvador, sensual and mercurial, keeping secrets. And there is the grave-digger himself, in over his head and running for his life
