The Harlem Charade by Natasha Tarpley
In their efforts to find the attackers, the three discover that there are missing master pieces from the past worth a fortune. If they can uncover them, they may be able to stop an ambitious politician who wants to turn their neighborhood into a ludicrous historic theme park.
Daring, danger and plenty of action enliven this story about what it means to be a community and the power of art to show truth and define home.
