A Dying Art
Respected Manhattan neurologist Dr. Thomas Purdue and his eccentric cast of music box collectors and aficionados are plunged into a new search for an elusive and rare collectible.

As the odd ensemble -- including an octogenarian music box dealer, a seasoned safe cracker and Purdue's favorite antiques picker Broadway Schwartz -- unravel the mystery. Purdue, a healer with the eccentricities of a true collector, can't resist playing a dangerous game that could be his last . . .
