5978 - A Grand Complication


From the first sentence, Stacy Perman grips her readers with this masterful tale.

In 1999, at a monumental auction held at Sotheby’s in New York City, an eighteen-carat gold pocket watch delivered in 1933 shattered all known records when it was sold for $11 million. Secretly commissioned by the wealthy financier Henry Graves, Jr., the timepiece contained twenty-four “complications,” including a celestial chart over Manhattan.

A book that you will not be able to put aside.
