A dangerous search for a $100 million painting looted by the Nazis brings Eddie Grant face to face with evil in Paris and Sarasota, FL. He barely escapes with his life. Publication Oct 8, review copies available.
A letter from his father’s World War II colleague in the Monuments Men pulls Eddie Grant reluctantly into a web of intrigue and death and launches him on a dangerous search for the most valuable piece of Nazi loot that remains missing, a famous Raphael self-portrait.
A wealthy French-American businessman and former U.S. Special Forces officer, Eddie is unexpectedly given a chance to solve the murder of his family seven years before. The quest takes him from his Paris home to Sarasota, where his father’s wartime colleague has just died under suspicious circumstances. The colleague’s daughter Jen, whom he last saw when they had a brief but torrid affair 20 years ago, brings him the cryptic letter. It’s the starting gun for a whirlwind chase, ending in Paris, for the painting and the gold bullion that’s thought to be with it.
