One after another, aged Nazis are being murdered in Europe, South America, and the United States. Enter FBI Special Agent Taz Fallon, who soon discovers the killings aren't the work of a vigilante bent on revenge for the Holocaust. Instead, they turn out to be part of an elaborate plot to put a new generation of Nazis into power. And the key to the entire scheme is a huge cache of paintings looted by Hitler from Jewish families during the Second World War. In The Führer's Reserve, Paul Lindsay weaves a tale of high stakes art smuggling, vicious homicides, and brilliant investigative prowess. Are Hitler's stolen masterpieces really hidden somewhere in Illinois?Could a secret Nazi sympathizer, known only as der Kurator, actually sell these works of art to finance a new Fascist movement? Can agent Taz Fallon, working with a beautiful young art historian, risk destroying Rembrandts, Titians, Vermeers, and countless other treasures to stop a Nazi coup?With a storyline as authentic as today's headlines, Lindsay -- a former, highly decorated FBI agent himself -- provides page-turning thrills and captivating insights into the way real world sleuths solve unimaginable crimes.It's no wonder that USA Today has written of Paul Lindsay, "Step aside, John Grisham!"

Review:

It's hard to find a new angle on old Nazis, particularly those with cryptic deathbed clues to Hitler's buried treasure. But the current cultural preoccupation with the cloudy provenance of art masterpieces in many of the world's great museums, most notably those that disappeared from the collections of Jews in the 1930s and '40s, makes Lindsay's newest thriller especially relevant. FBI agent Taz Fallon retrieves a Chicago millionaire's son from kidnappers--a man with ties to militant Jewish organizations the Bureau would like to penetrate. But first the man wants another favor from Taz: finding a cache of masterpieces hidden across the Midwest decades ago by a mysterious man known as the Curator. The Curator has hired ruthless killers to retrieve the paintings, which will be sold to finance the resurgence of Nazism. Sivia, a beautiful young art historian who joins forces with Taz, has her own reasons for trying to beat them to the treasure. Deciphering the coded clues in one painting to the location of the next, Taz and Sivia catch up to the killers in a bloody, exciting denouement, but the real shocker is the Curator's identity, which will surprise even the most attentive reader. This dramatic, fast-paced story has an intriguing, iconoclastic hero, a plot as right now as today's headlines, and a solid grounding in the author's own 20 years with the FBI. --Jane Adams
