Publisher's Summary

In London an Auschwitz survivor is murdered in his hospital bed, his killers making off with a macabre trophy: his severed left arm. In Fort Mead, Maryland, a vicious gang breaks into the NSA museum and steals a World War II Enigma machine, lynching the guard who happens to cross their path. Meanwhile, in Prague, a frenzied and mindless anti-Semitic attack on a synagogue culminates in the theft of a seemingly worthless painting by a little-known Czech artist, Karel Bellak.

A year has passed since Tom Kirk, the world's greatest art thief, decided to put his criminal past behind him and embark on a new career, on the right side of the law. Then three major thefts occur, and suddenly Tom is confronted with a deadly mystery and a sinister face from the past.

Critic Reviews

"Once again, Twining offers a tremendously well-researched and exciting adventure that delves into the secret orders of the Nazi hierarchy and traces the history and lore of Nazi plunder." (Library Journal)

Macho Cliche

Thought this could be interesting as historical fiction but had more (marginally offensive) stereotypes than you could shake a stick at. Insufferable macho male protagonist who is like James Bond but with even less personality/integrity. Any conclusions finally drawn are myopic, convenient and flawed. Also, the female characters were primitive and described mostly as the sum of their most attractive body parts. Sorry but I did not enjoy this.
