About Five Days in Bogotá

Gallery owner Ally Blake risks everything to exhibit at a fair in Bogotá. She needs wealthy collectors to save her family from bankruptcy. When her crates are lost, and an ex-boyfriend involves her in a money laundering scheme, she devises a strategy to thwart the fraud. But pulling it off will require her to make the art deal of a lifetime.
