THE GIRL WITH SOMETHING TO HIDE
Pilar Rivera has more skeletons in her closet than Jack the Ripper...JFK's assassination, the hit on mob boss Lucky Luciano, the murder of news reporter Dorothy Kilgallen and more. Pilar knows Bobby Kennedy had Marilyn Monroe murdered because she has Marilyn's diary and all its dirty secrets about the Kennedys and their dealings with Frank Sinatra and the Mafia, not to mention their clandestine deal with the Russians.
Now, Pilar's entire existence is a deadly game of hide and seek. It only gets worse after she steals a bag full of JFK's bribe money from defense contractors, a suitcase full of LBJ's dirty money from Billy Sol Estes, and one of Fidel Castro's nuclear timebombs smuggled into the U.S. In between, she helps pull off the biggest jewel heist in New York City history.
But the mother of all secrets is the Raphael masterpiece she took from Lucky Luciano, and is now hiding on a secret island while it's being copied by master art forger Elmyr de Hory in a plot to bilk Aristotle Onassis out of millions.
Now Pilar is "it." Everybody and his dog is looking for her. The CIA, the FBI, the KGB, the Mob, the Vatican, the Cubans, Onassis -- they all want what she's hiding, and then they want her dead. Her only way out: Get them before they get her.
