Publisher's Summary

The time has come for Cassiopeia Vitt to sell her ancestral home. It sits on a Spanish bluff by the Mediterranean Sea, and bears the name Casa de Hace Mucho Tiempo, House of Long Ago. 

Trapped inside its walls are memories from a time when Cassiopeia was growing from a rebellious adolescent into a thoughtful young woman - regretful times when she often found herself estranged from her parents. Also inside are 15 paintings, each one a masterpiece, together representing an investment in the 10s of millions of euros - her father’s private art collection - which she intends to donate to museums. But when an art expert declares all 15 paintings fake, and suggests that her father may have been involved with something illegal, she embarks on a quest to find answers.

From a secret repository in Andorra, to a mysterious yacht in the Mediterranean, then finally onto the streets of Paris and a horrific reminder from World War II, Cassiopeia must battle every step of the way to stay alive - a fight that will finally bring her face to face with the truth about the House of Long Ago.

Great story poor narration

CITROEN ! Prounounced Ci - tro - en! She keeps saying citron. It is driving me crazy. If you are going to narrate a story with words in another language, LEARN TO PRONOUNCE THE WORDS PROPERLY! Other than that, praise for Berry and Rose. Great story.

Good story, waste of a credit

Good story. Good story telling. But Edward Gibbon’s 12-volume unabridged monograph is 1 credit - and so is this. Once you start getting into the story (which again, is good) it’s over. It’s bittersweet. If these are teasers for full fledged novels, then by all means, the ideas certainly seem to be market-worthy. But on they’re own, they’re just appetizers.

A good short story

While not on a par with the Cotton Malone books? this was an engaging story. The Cassiopeia adventures seem to be improving with each instalment.
