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.
'Chasing Mona Lisa' by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey is a fascinating sequel to 'The Swiss Courier'. This book continues the saga of two of the main characters, Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler, as they embark on a new adventure in France to keep the Mona Lisa from the hands of the Nazis. You experience the fear of those who dare to stand against the Nazis and the exuberance of the French when they are liberated. While the plot is slightly predictable, it is still a page turner from the beginning!
