When the telephone rings one day, the end result of the call is total confusion for Paloma. Is her beloved nanny from childhood really being held captive as a sex-slave? Are the preposterous claims of the mysterious caller actually true? Is one of her pieces of art, the Immaculate Conception by 17th century Quito artist Isabel Santiago really stolen? And is the caller the true heir to the painting? – Read the full book review here-https://readersentertainment.com/2011/when-the-life-of-an-art-collector-turns-dramatic/
