In 2000 Colorado, Lieutenant Colonel Irish Flaherty is

Advisory Commission looking into missing Holocaust
treasures names his grandfather as a potential thief.

duty, and country would do such a deed. Irish decides to
prove the innocence of his grandfather and begins making
inquiries that take him to Professor Amy Mallory. She also
believes her grandfather would never dishonor his uniform.
The third grandchild of the posthumously accused
generals, Assistant to the Deputy Secretary of State Dustin
Eachan knows that his hopes for the top job ended with this
story. He informs his cousin to hide a painting that is on
the inventory list though he believes that his grandfather
is innocent of any real looting.

five decades ago, but to make matters worse, someone wants
the trio and anyone close to them dead.

cherish the tale just as much. The characters are
realistic, especially their varying reactions to the media
release of the theft. Readers will struggle to ascertain
whom the villain is while rooting for the trio to save the
reputations of their ancestors. Ms. Potter has written a
great story that will gain her a wealth of new fans.
