Description

-Meet Tom Kirk...heir to the throne of the twisty international thriller, a seat that has belonged to Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan for more than two decades.-

--Cleveland Plain Dealer



The Geneva Deception by James Twining brings back reformed art thief Tom Kirk for a fourth nail-biting outing. A high-wire act of fast-paced narrative and engaging mystery, The Geneva Deception has Kirk racing across the globe on the trail of a missing masterpiece and a killer whose grisly handiwork copies scenes from classic works of art. If you haven't yet discovered James Twining (-A worthy successor to Forsyth, Follett, and Higgins.- --Christopher Reich) or his intrepid protagonist Tom Kirk (-An action hero as adroit and charismatic as Clive Cussler's Dar Pitt.- --Library Journal), here's an excellent place to start.

Back cover copy

There is an art to murder . . .

In Rome, the Eternal City . . . three shocking homicides occur in three days--each a grisly re-creation of a painting by one of the most revered artistic giants of all time. But this new -artist- works in blood, not oils.

A reformed art thief on assignment for the FBI, Tom Kirk is in a Las Vegas casino with $20 million to purchase a Caravaggio masterpiece unseen for nearly half a century--a transaction that's brutally cut short by gunfire. A shattering assassination rocks Kirk's world, plunging him and unorthodox Italian detective Allegra Damico into an international web of evil that encompasses the Church, politicians, the police, and the Mafia. The road Kirk and Allegra must now follow is twisting and treacherous, winding through Vatican secrets, blood oaths, and Swiss betrayals. And death surely waits at the end.
