Just when you
thought World War II was really over, a retired CIA Officer and
his Swiss wife stumble into Europe to retire. On a visit to Paris,
they start looking at some real estate that once belonged to her
"How come you don't own it any more?" he innocently asks.
That starts them on the trail to an adventure that leads the couple
higher and higher into the French aristocracy and the seemy underside
of Paris. They suddenly find themselves in a situation where they
need to use all the training and survival skills they learned at
From Paris to Geneva and back again, someone is trying to lead them
away from the truth, someone has the Police after them, someone
is trying to get them sent back to the United States--and someone
is trying to kill them. Someone collaborated with the Nazis and
doesn't want the fact brought out.
This novel sweeps from the elegance Geneva's Lake shore to Paris--the
glitzy and the chique as well as the flesh pots and dirt--in a story
that needs to be told and never fails to deliver.
