about Stealing with Style
In Sterling Glass's line of work, it's not unusual to unearth a few family skeletons among the family heirlooms she appraises. But when she's called in to determine the worth of a diamond brooch found tucked inside an oven mitt over at the Salvation Army thrift store, and when the appraisal of an extremely modest estate turns up an 1810 Paul Storr tea urn — hidden inside a blanket and worth at least fifty grand—things just don't add up.
Sterling, never one to let go of loose ends, starts asking questions and uncovers a plot involving a slew of antique pieces, the oldest families of Leemont, some sophisticated scammers, crooked antiques dealers, and shifty people at the best New York houses.
Stealing with Style introduces a writer of great wit and a grand sense of the mystery hidden in our most treasured possessions.
