The Sirena Quest by Michael A. Kahn
Four college roommates from Barrett College, Class of 1974, reconnect for their twentieth class reunion, and take up the challenge to recover the college mascot, a bronze statue named Serena, that disappeared in 1959 in the aftermath of a college prank that turned disastrous.
What's at stake? A $25 million endowment from a billionaire member of the Class of 1959 to their alma mater depends on the return of the long-missing icon during the class reunion, plus an additional award of $3 million dollars to be awarded to Sirena's finders.
Several groups take up the challenge, including the "James Gang:" St. Louis lawyer Louis Solomon, southern California mall mogul Ray Gorman, advertising executive Gordon Cohen and middle school teacher Billy McCormick.
It's a great story, revolving around this quirky quest by a quartet of guys trying to come to terms with their vanishing youth. And features a cameo appearance by a young, up-and-coming attorney named Rachel Gold, who provides them with a critical lead.
Michael Kahn is an attorney in St. Louis and the author of ten previous mystery books, a number of them set in St. Louis and featuring Rachel Gold.
