First Line: Ash cash. That’s what medical students call it.

In Maryland a Nazi Enigma machine is stolen from the National Cryptologic Museum. In a London hospital, an Auschwitz survivor is murdered in his hospital bed, his arm severed and taken by his murderers. In Prague, a seemingly worthless painting is stolen from a synagogue. Three cities. Three crimes. Is there a connection? Former art thief Tom Kirk does not seem to think that there is a link between these three incidents, but when he begins to investigate he realizes that there is some sort of a connection, and he will be in a race against time to figure out the connection and connect all the dots in order to find a fabled hidden treasure.

This is the second in the Tom Kirk series. I enjoyed this book, but I think the first book was much better. I was a history major in college, so naturally I will always enjoy any book with a historical slant to it. This one had some slow spots and some fast spots, but overall I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Yeah, I’m Ready!

 

So, I’m a HUGE Salukis Basketball fan, and you cannot imagine how excited I am about the 2010-2011 season. Unfortunately, our team has had a slight fall from grace the past few years, and we probably won’t be much better this year, but that doesn’t keep me from being OVERLY excited about the season starting October 30th!! I’ve got a countdown going on like there’s no tomorrow, and I am ready! GO DAWGS!!!
