Summary
When a man is arrested at a museum for attempting to steal the bullet-ridden suit of a Columbian politician murdered decades ago, few notice. But soon this thwarted theft takes on greater meaning as it becomes a thread in a widening web of popular fixations with contemporary conspiracies, historical secrets, and famous assassinations, haunting those who feel that only they know the real truth behind these killings and the mysteries surrounding them. --
