Win, by Harlan Coben
Over twenty years ago, heiress Patricia Lockwood was abducted during a robbery of her family's estate, then locked inside an isolated cabin for months. She escaped, but so did her captors. The stolen items were never recovered - until now. On the Upper West Side, a recluse is found murdered in his penthouse apartment, alongside a stolen Vermeer painting and a leather suitcase bearing the initials WHL3. The suitcase and painting both point toward one man - Windsor Horne Lockwood III. Win doesn't know how his suitcase and his family's stolen painting ended up with a dead man, but his interest is piqued, especially when the FBI tells him that the man who kidnapped his cousin was also behind an act of domestic terrorism, and the conspirator may still be at large. The two cases have baffled the FBI for decades, but Win has three things the FBI doesn't: a personal connection to the case; an ungodly fortune; and his own unique brand of justice.
