About the Book

In The Collection: A Novel, by Bruce Weiss, a world class New England Prep School finds itself in the middle of a controversy over who owns thousands of excavated South American artifacts.

     The relics, known world wide as The Collection, sits at the center of an international tug of war between the evil headmaster of the Hampton Academy and the indigenous people of the tiny Andean community of Cruz Orjo. Henry White vows never to return what he insists are his, while the Mayor, Pedro Alvarez and the village Shaman seek the return of artifacts that they consider stolen.

     A story of international intrigue, greed, evil, and crime, not to mention a fast-paced and compelling novel with well-portrayed characters, this is a thoroughly riveting read.
