Comments & Reviews
most engaging and plausible plot ... '
A gripping suspense filled story and an
entertaining read ... move over Dan Brown ...' Ed. Norbett,
book compels you to read on, one sensational plot after
another, The Inspector is almost too good to be true but
Gerard Colbert - le colonel - is my favourite - although
Annabelle is pretty good. Well-positioned in historical fact,
there is no reason why this could not be the true story or
close to it . Cannot wait for the sequel.. Gavin, Singapore

last. Sam Cotton,
CRIME OF THE CENTURY!
MONA LISA STOLEN
Exclusive sources in the SurÍte confirm the famous painting
last night in a brazen robbery at the Louvre. Police are investigating and
expect an early arrest ...
Figaro, Paris 12 August 1986
Da Vinci's Mona Lisa – the most famous icon in the art
world – was stolen from the Louvre in Paris in 1911 and
again in 1986. This story may be the truth behind this
endearing painting... and her smile.
The compelling story of the intrigue surrounding the robberies is engaging, fast-moving and one of enthralling mystery. With
double-cross and murder, the persuasive conspiracy has an
unexpected... and most unusual conclusion.
Drawing upon the robbery of the painting from the Louvre in 1911 and its substitution with a
superb copy, the storyline is transposed to modern-day Paris.
The involvement of the forebears of some
of the participants is inextricably linked to the original robbery and a motivation for this new attempt.
An international thriller rich in atmosphere as the tale moves from Maryland in the USA to
Florence and Paris, Tel Aviv, Hong Kong and Nice on the south coast of France. The gripping, suspense
filled finale on the Spanish island of Majorca, is alive with the imagery of the locales.
