In a remote Greek village, Captain Elias and his guerillas in the resistance are engaged in battle with the Nazis. A church is burnt to the ground and several people die trying to save a religious icon. Sixty years later the icon surfaces on the New York art market.

Neil Olson is the president and senior partner of Donadio & Olson Literary Agency, and lives in New York. The Icon is his first novel.From AudioFile:
Olson's debut novel begins slowly and then picks up the pace dramatically. Clearly written with THE DA VINCI CODE in mind, the story concerns Nazis and Greeks and an icon known as the Holy Mother of Katarini, which allegedly contains pieces of the blood-stained robe of Jesus. Eric Conger's reading parallels the story. At first, the listener wonders at his vocal lassitude, but he comes alive as the plot intensifies. While the conclusion is predictable, the story is entertaining, and Conger's reading, particularly during the climax, makes for a satisfying, albeit uneven, novel.
