2/20/1992 Black Market opens

February 20, 1992.  This day saw the publication of Black Market, a thriller by Robert Tine.  A New York art dealer is asked to evaluate a painting passed down through the family.  Turns out to be a 400-year-old Italian old master.  Cut to flashbacks of the African-American quartermaster corps in occupied Rome...

Publishers Weekly said: "Tine blends impoverished Italian nobility, Army bureaucrats, South African bigots, eccentric Brits and Holt, with his demand for dignity and justice, to yield a rich palette. A genius at characterization, he indelibly etches the personalities of this wildly diverse cast of players."
