In his capacity as counsel for the Loring Matsen law firm, legal representatives of the CIA, John Cann this time finds himself in Amsterdam to monitor the Scottish Court proceedings dealing with the two terrorists responsible for the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in December, 1988. After meeting Colin Hardie, an expert on Scottish law who will attend the proceedings with him, both witness an assassination attempt on a Libyan official apparently by a relative of victims of the bombing of the 747. While the violent attempt on the life of an official of the country widely held responsible seems understandable to many, including Cann, it quickly becomes apparent that all is not as it seems - indeed nothing is at it seems. Not in Amsterdam - nor back in Washington, DC. Once again, Macomber's novel spans the Atlantic but never loses sight of the individuals caught up - and harmed - in the global intrigue that shapes events. His character development has been remarked upon as almost unique in the thriller genre - you care about the good people and despise the evil ones - and there are plenty of those to go around. This 'edge-of-your-seat' thriller takes the reader from Amsterdam's seedy Canal district, to Virginia's CIA headquarters and even to the innermost circles of the White House. And finally, when the twisted events unravel, the tense rescue and shocking conclusion will leave you breathless and you'll again be touched by the strength and the compassion of this intelligent, articulate, and sometimes ruthless hero.

"Art & Part", the second John Cann adventure is Outstanding! The plotting is superb. The character development is excellent. The dialog is outstanding. The pacing is perfect. Macomber nailed it! Geoff Metcalf, Commentator, Talk Show Host, and Author --Geoff Metcalf
"With "Art & Part", Jim Macomber has done it again; another timely thriller ripped straight from today's headlines. " David Hagberg (Sean Flannery), Best Selling Author of "Assassin", "White House", "Joshua's Hammer" and many more. --David Hagberg
"I am reluctant to give away any of the plot but will say this much....I found myself moved to tears over what happened...then felt tremendous anger. The last few chapters are page turners during which I found myself 'cheering' for John Cann against the bad guys. Imagine a novelist that combines Clancy's best 'thriller' skills along with the legal expertise of Grisham....that's James Macomber! Reader, Sarasota, Florida --Reader, Sarasota, FL
