Description
Excerpt: JARED SHEBLEY leaned back in his teak?wood chair and toyed with the Burmese katar. His crisp smile, slicing across his parchment face, would have suited an Oriental potentate more than a New York curio collector. Shebley?s surroundings were in keeping with his appearance. This was his curio room, the pride of his Manhattan penthouse. Its walls were adorned with tall, narrow tapestries, woven mostly in gold and silver, set alternately between the glass?fronted cabinets that housed the rarities comprising Shebley?s collection. It would have required a sizable pamphlet to describe those items. In fact, such a pamphlet was already in the making; the proof sheets were scattered all over the chess table which Shebley used as a desk. The table itself, a bulky and elaborate affair inlaid with squares of black and white mother?of?pearl, was one of Shebley?s chief prizes. It was supposed to be the table on which a Persian prince had been maneuvering his men when he was captured, along with his royal tent, by Hulagu, the Mongolian invader operating under the banner of Genghis Khan.
