Then millionaire Miami real estate developer Stuart Barlowe offers him fifty thousand dollars to travel to Italy with his daughter Allison, a map expert and Tom's childhood love, to duplicate a rare Renaissance map. But Tom soon suspects that Barlowe wants a forgery, not a duplicate. He just doesn't know why, and Allison isn't talking. When people start turning up dead, and Tom and Allison realize they are being tailed, it quickly becomes clear that they have no one to trust but each other.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This novel demands that you hold on to your seat with both hands. How, then, will you turn the pages? Not to worry, they pretty much do it themselves.” Washington Post
“Gratifying Hitchcock territory...[a] vintage international thriller.” Houston Chronicle
“Parker delivers a fresh plot...[and] a surprising ending.” South Florida Sun-Sentinel
“A remarkable tale of international intrigue.” Miami New Times
“Engrossing…fresh and compelling.” Booklist
“Paul Garcia revels in the thuggishness of Parker’s Eastern European hit man, the whininess of her Florida millionaires, and the earnest, romantic nature of her hero, Tom Fairchild…The vocal distinctions are theatrical, lending drama to a novel of international intrigue.” AudioFile
“An interesting, quick-moving story…A satisfying read even for veteran mystery readers. Recommended.” Library Journal
