About this title


Jacob Meyers is stunned to see his father's Pissarro-taken by the Nazis in 1945-among the paintings up for sale at The Old World Auction House in Manhattan. He questions the manager, and while he reads a phony provenance, the Pissarro is withdrawn from sale and mysteriously disappears. Jacob, head of an intelligence group, alerts Interpol and joins their ongoing investigation into the underground world of stolen art.Two suspect paintings, a Manet and a CÚzanne sold by an international cartel in Berlin as copies, are tracked to the Berghoff Gallery in Chicago where they are auctioned off as originals. An accidental shooting at the gallery exposes the cartel's con game and leads to the blackmail of a Las Vegas odds maker, the murder of a San Francisco politician, and the assassination of a former matinee idol in West Virginia.With the help the Founders Group Intelligence (FGI), a group of patriotic activists whose primary objective is to preserve the Constitution, protect U.S. Sovereignty, and expose political corruption, Jacob doggedly pursues the trail of clues from an estate in Georgia to a castle in Denmark to recover the priceless pieces before the originals become lost among the forgeries.

From the Author:

My attention was drawn to the subject during a 60 Minute segment on CBS Like most I had heard stories of stolen art by the Nazi's but little more. In any event my interest was enough to send me to the library. I picked up two books on the holocaust and before I had finished one I was hooked on the subject. After some thought I settled on my main character's name, Jacob Myers or was it Meyers? I called a pal of mine in New York and asked what's the spelling of the German name Myers. He said, 'Meyers same as mine.' Thanks Marty. Then it's Jacob Meyers.
