There is the greatly respected curator, who for a fee will provide provenances for his country's looted artifacts, and his long-suffering housekeeper, a deeply religious lesbian in a culture of machismo, who despises her patron. And there is the looter himself, who has stolen the mask and is now running for his life.Above all, there is Anna Ramsey, an American with a history of bad choices, who has hidden behind a mask all her adult life.
