Once presumed lost, art held by the Czech dictator Ceausescu shows up at an auction, and Jan Capek must return to his native Prague to track down the source, hunting through the dangerous underground world beneath the city.

Review:

A tightly written, believable spy novel is a thing of beauty, and this new one from British master Douglas Skeggs is gorgeous. Set in Prague, that most European of cities, in 1991 just after the fall of communism, it rapidly drops us into a world of death and intrigue surrounding an art collection that used to belong to Rumanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Czech-born British agent Jan Capek has to deal with all sorts of conflicts--political, venal, criminal and sexual--as he tries to keep the world free.

About the Author:

Douglas Skeggs is an art historian with an international reputation, specialising in the Impressionists. He has written an appreciation of Monet and four novels of suspense. He is in great demand as a lecturer and is rather good at 'painting' Old Masters himself.
