Booklist Review

Amy Mallory is a professor of advanced American history at a small Tennessee college. Colonel Lucien "Irish" Flaherty is on R and R at his Colorado ranch. Complete strangers, they are drawn together by something they have in common--now-dead grandfathers that have been accused of looting Jewish riches from a Nazi treasure train at the end of World War II. And that's not all: a mysterious force from the past is making Amy and Irish the targets of one murder attempt after the other. Palms will sweat and hearts will race as readers follow their narrow escapes from the relentless pursuit of a powerful, unknown villain. This well-written crossover novel will thrill lovers of the suspense genre as well as those who enjoy a good romance. --Shelley Mosley

Publisher's Weekly Review

History professor Amy Mallory's devotion to her long-deceased grandfather is put to the test when he and two other high-ranking World War II vets are accused of having looted Jewish treasures nearly 60 years earlier. Raised by a flower-child single mom who scorned all authority, Amy's naturally leery when handsome, 40-something Lt. Colonel Irish Flaherty, also determined to disprove the allegations against his family name, arrives in Memphis just in time to witness her house burnt to the ground. Nevertheless, she slowly begins to trust him after he thwarts several attempts on her life. While the two pour over a box of military documents which may hold a key to their grandfathers' pasts, they desperately attempt to contact the third major player, D.C. bigwig, Dustin Eachan, whose true agenda will keep readers guessing until the novel's end. The gutsy action and compact dialogue that marks Potter's latest (after The Heart Queen) is softened by a believable romance between her seemingly mismatched protagonists and extensive character development even Amy's irritating, emotionally distraught dog, Bojangles, is afforded some psychological depth. Although Potter is better known for her historical romances, this bracing romantic thriller proves that she's just as comfortable writing in the contemporary arena. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
