Baker & Taylor
Having orchestrated an art theft to cover a debt only to have the paintings stolen, a Brooklyn insurance investigator is directed to look into his own crime, a situation that is complicated by bookie pressures, his ex-girlfriend's four cats and accusations that he is responsible for sniper attacks. By the author of Feelers.

McMillan Palgrave
Tom Davin’s business is a bit unusual—he finds stolen art and sells it back to its owners for a good penny—until he uncovers a devious plot and finds himself on the run from a vicious Russian assassin
Tom Davin is a Brooklyn insurance investigator in a jam. He arranged an art theft to cover a debt—only somebody swiped the paintings from his crew. Now the insurance company wants him to investigate his own art theft; the local bookie wants his money; his crew in the neighborhood is targeted by a sniper; both the mob and the cops think he’s the shooter; and his girlfriend split and stuck him with four cats that are redecorating his apartment. Six-foot-six Tommy nimbly navigates his troubles and Brooklyn with the help of tantric yoga, his father’s aphorisms, and a comely masseuse. But the question remains: do good things happen to good people? The answer lurks in a fiery Brooklyn scrap yard.

Pretty lame intrigue, if we can say there's any intrigue at all. So many people coming and going about an (petty) art theft. Pretty much incredible. Maybe the author thought that all would be perfect if Gustav created armageddon all by his lonesome with some awesome weapon. Well, unfortunately, it didn't. But, at least, it brought the book to an (disappointing) conclusion. All in all, I think there was more intrigue with the cats, I'm just saying.
