When Anna Ramsey learns that a meth-addicted looter has dug up what might be the funerary mask of Montezuma, she books the next flight to Oaxaca. Determined to redeem her father, a discredited art collector, and to one-up her unfaithful fiance, Anna hurls herself headlong into Mexico’s underground art world.

But others are chasing the treasure as well. Anna soon realizes that everyone is masked—some literally, others metaphorically.

Dancing with the Tiger is a splendid reminder that throughout human history, cultures have revered masks: masks are as universal as our desire to transform ourselves, to change. Anna, without an ounce of self-pity despite traumatic losses, stands out as a heroine for our times as she finds the courage to show her true face.
