About the Book
It is August 1944 and Paris is on the cusp of liberation. As the soldiers of the Third Reich flee the Allied advance, they ravage the country, stealing countless pieces of art. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring will stop at nothing to claim the most valuable one of all, the Mona Lisa, as a post-war bargaining chip to get him to South America. Can Swiss OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler rescue DaVinci’s masterpiece before it falls into German hands?
With nonstop action, Chasing Mona Lisa is sure to get readers’ adrenaline pumping as they join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged Paris to a posh country chateau, the race is on–and the runners are playing for keeps.

In Chasing Mona Lisa readers are treated to an action packed historical adventure. Told from the perspective of multiple characters from varying political and ethnic backgrounds, the fictional accounts of historical events are rich and varied. Unfortunately, I felt that the event driven elements of the story were at the expense of character development and emotional connection. The plot line surrounding the Mona Lisa was secondary to the Resistance efforts as it wasn’t until at least 100 pages in that the Mona Lisa’s storyline came to the forefront. Even then, the Mona Lisa was a means to an end for characters like Bernard and Colette. Twists and turns throughout the book kept the plot moving quickly and were interesting, but I wish I had been drawn in to the story more.
