|Con-men, crypts, buried treasure... and zombies|
The novel is set in New York City in 1931. Scoundrel, con-man and thief James Finnigan is a man who likes shiny things. On what was supposed to be his last job, Finnigan accidentally discovers a secret crypt under the Harker's Foundation 5th Avenue headquarters, and finds a mysterious silver bar. It is shiny, ancient - and priceless. Unfortunately, a lot of people are after that silver bar -- not all of them alive, and not necessarily quite dead either.
