Publisher's Summary

Acquisition of the King's Jar, a priceless African artifact, is a major coup for San Francisco's prestigious Devor Museum of Art and Antiquities - and the gala celebration honoring its donors is a high-stakes affair. Dani O'Rourke, Devor's chief fundraiser, is a pro at dealing with wealthy patrons, demanding bosses, big egos, and museum-world politics. Murder, however, is way above her pay grade, and definitely beyond her comfort zone.
When the renowned archaeologist who authenticated the King's Jar turns up dead, and the invaluable relic vanishes, Dani suddenly finds herself trapped in a real-life game of Clue - with a gallery of glittering suspects, and a killer who's playing for keeps. But drumming up donations from society swells is a far cry from matching wits with homicidal thieves. And juggling the amorous advances of a police detective, a TV celebrity, and her own playboy ex-husband - while sparring with an African ambassador, an obsessed archaeologist-in-training, a billionaire and his trophy wife - certainly doesn't make it any easier to figure out who's lying...or keep anyone else from dying.

Pleasant listen

This was a nice book to listen to while driving or working around the house. A little slow getting started, but the main characters were interesting. My only real issue was with the narrator, who did a fine job overall, but evidently was unfamiliar with some of the words and would mispronounce them. For example the word "coup" was used several times, but it was spoken as "coop".
