"Uncle Oscar was one of a kind. His dusty antiques shop, the Green Vase--nestled in San Francisco's historic Jackson Square neighborhood--was like his own personal museum to the Gold Rush era. Needless to say, I was shocked when he was found dead in his shop, and even more surprised to discover he'd left the venerable establishment to me...Before long, I learned my inheritance included all sorts of clues Uncle Oscar has left behind--a peculiar key, a trap door, a puzzling map..."--p.[4] of cover.

Loads of potential mostly unrealized.

Uncle Oscar did not deserve to die, nor did we readers deserve to be subjected to Monty and his interfering & prattling. The bits of history about San Francisco (if they aren't real history the writer missed their calling!) were intriguing.

There were some interesting personalities beginning to be characters...but the pace of development was glacial at times. I kept hoping I would detect the purpose for the mystery and the eventual 'flourish' was only loosely related to most of the rest of the storyline.
