Deep in the depths of an ill-reputed bar in Toronto, Tancred Palmieri comes across Willow Azarian, a middle-aged heroine addict, and heir to a huge fortune.

To reach the fortune, though, she must solve the clues left by her late father - and who better to help her than quick-minded superthief Tancred?

A story of new friendship, mistrust, betrayal, and morality in the face of violence, The Hidden Keys is a philosophical pageturner with a gripping mystery at its heart.
