In the early morning hours of March 18, 1990, two thieves disguised as policemen entered the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. After tying up the guards, they went on a shoplifting spree, making off with 13 masterpieces worth more than $500 million. It was the largest art heist in U.S. history. The burglary— which included paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Degas and Manet — became an international whodunit that featured a long list of possible suspects, among them South American drug traffickers, the Irish Republican Army and even James “Whitey” Bulger, Boston’s infamous mob boss.
This e-single, featuring articles from The New York Times archives, chronicles 23 years of dashed hopes and false leads that have thwarted the Federal Bureau of Investigation in its attempts to solve the country’s most notorious art caper. Now there may be some light on the horizon: In March 2013, the F.B.I. announced that it had finally uncovered who was behind the crime. The culprits, the agency said, were members of a criminal organization in the Northeast, but their names were not released pending further investigation.
When the Keepers of Justice invite former supervillain Shadow to join their League, he’s given a chance to start over. With no memory of who he is or the terrible things he’s done, he trains to be a hero like the rest of the League.
But things change when he starts hearing a voice in his head telling him the Keepers aren’t to be trusted. The more time he spends with the heroes, the more suspicious he becomes. Why does it seem like everyone is uncomfortable around him? Why is his sister keeping secrets? Once he learns the truth of who he really is and who the voice belongs to, Shadow is faced with a decision: can he be the hero he knows he can be or is he doomed to be a villain forever?

When the doctor still looked at her blankly, she spelled it out for him. “Give him a below job.” “I don’t understand what you mean,” Dr. Gregory said. Oh, for St. Peter’s sake. Daisy dropped to her knees … Dr.
Ivan Gregory and his laboratory assistants, Elspeth Fortescue and Elliot Brown, continue their Victorian-age study of sexual arousal and climax. This time they are investigating the accidental discovery of something Dr. Gregory calls a C-spot because it precipitates climax. (Miss Fortescue thinks it should be called a G-spot after its discoverer, Dr.
Gregory.) To determine whether this phenomenon is unique to Miss Fortescue or common to other women, they hire, with some trepidation, a prostitute for their experiment. However, Daisy turns out not only to be a fount of information about human sexuality, she knows a few shocking tricks they’ve never seen before. This feisty young working girl might even hold the key to Miss Fortescue’s personal and very private project—the proper bedding of Ivan Gregory himself. This 14,000 word novelette is a work of steampunk erotica with explicit scenes that are intended only for mature audiences.
