Publisher's Summary

In Pursuit of Platinum is an action-packed thriller that keeps you wondering right to the end - and beyond. 

As the Germans are about to invade Paris in 1940 American Ben Peters attempts to smuggle a fortune in platinum out of the city in the legendary Bullion Bentley. But the Bentley is carrying an even more valuable human cargo, a mysterious Frenchwoman escaping with her young son and a secret that could change the course of the Second World War. Alena and Ben are the targets of Hitler's ruthless investigator, whose family will be executed if he fails. His orders are to silence Alena before she can reveal her secret; capture her young son and take him back to Berlin; and recover the Banque de France's platinum. 

As they flee their hunter, they experience the stark and tragic realities of war and the raw emotions of two heroes living on the edge of fear. And not everything is as it seems. Who is Alena and what is her secret that could destroy everything Adolf Hitler and the Nazis stand for?  

In Pursuit of Platinum will be enjoyed by readers of WWII historical fiction authors Robert Harris, Alan Furst, Ken Follett, and Len Deighton and lovers of espionage thriller writers David Baldacci, Daniel Silva, Nelson DeMille, Vince Flynn, and Lee Child. The first book in Vic Robbie's successful Ben Peters series, it sets the pattern for the fast-paced, action-packed intrigue emulated in his subsequent books, Paradise Gold and The Girl with the Silver Stiletto, that reviewers praised as "Brilliant! Exciting! Suspenseful!"

Thoroughly enjoyed this tale.

In Pursuit of Platinum. I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. It is a really good plot well written and constructed. Plenty of action and fast paced. Superbly narrated. I look forward to the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review. .
