Vera Jane Cookabout this book: On October of 1964 several hundred gems were stolen from the Museum of Natural History; among them, the Star Sapphire of India, the de Long Ruby and the Eagle Diamond. All of the jewels were recovered with the exception of the Eagle Diamond, though it is believed to have been long cut up and sold.
In Callicoon, an obscure town in upstate New York, the Eagle Diamond, in all its glory, has been hidden inside a grandfather clock for over forty years. When a bid for the diamond is leaked to an underground art organization known as the LVAJ (locators of valuable art and jewels) several agents descend on Callicoon in search of the diamond.
What they find is more than they bargained for. What's inside your grandfather clock?
What's hanging on your grandmother's wall? Who in this vast world share your genes?
Does the primal experience of love last a lifetime?
Marybeth, Hollister & Jane - oh, when secrets come to light!
