In a fast moving tale of murder and intrigue, Rawlings takes the reader from the elegance of Paris to the dark underbelly of international crime and terrorism wrapped in a plot that twists and turns like a summer tornado. The story line revolves around the travel industry, art stolen by the Nazis in World War II, the Port of Savannah, fine food and wine, trans-Atlantic smuggling, Vidalia Onions, European terrorists, the FBI, and Underground Atlanta, plus the relationship between Nate Finch and Clair Tate, two people thrust together by cruel change in a life or death struggle for survival.From the riveting opening scene to the ending that one reviewer described as “our worst national security nightmare,” this is one book you won't be able to put down once you've started it.Awarded the 2005 Golden Eye Literary Prize.About the Author:
William Rawlings, Jr., was born and raised in "The Center of the Universe"—Sandersville, Georgia—where he still lives and practices medicine when he's not busy growing pine trees, traveling, restoring old buildings or writing books. "I live on a piece of land that has been in my family for nearly 200 years," the author of The Rutherford Cipher and The Lazard Legacy notes. "Like my father, his father and generations before, we seem to have settled down and have no particular desire to leave this undistinguished bit of rural clay. Lewis Thomas once wrote that an author's entire world revolves around the tip of his pen. My world, and my perspective of it, is deeply shaped by who I am and where I live."
