The Black Madonna by David Bunn
Gentleman Adventurer" Davis Bunn delivers an international thriller of elusive treasure, desperate measures, and a race against death's clock with The Black Madonna. Capitalizing on the successful introduction of Storm Syrrell in Gold of Kings, Bunn brings Syrrell back for this epic tale.
Antiquarian Storm Syrrell is in desperate need of cash. When a nameless, faceless client calls her with a request to track down a non-existent antique rumored to bear miraculous healing in its being, Storm should say no. But the man's pockets are deep.
What desperation leads a man to pay millions for a glimpse of hope?
Storm hopes the answer won't be the death of her business...or her.

My Take: This is the second in a series about Storm Syrrell the first being . You don't need to have read this book before you read The Black Madonna but you will want to pick it up because you will want to read more about Storm and her adventures. This books that you don't need to have language and sex to have a great mystery thriller. The story had me wanting to keep reading just to see what would happen next. Highly recommend this book.
