Published by CUSTOM BOOK PUBLICATIONS Santini watched in awe as his father took the Christ figure and laid it on the cross. With delicate manipulation of the plunger, he soldered the figure to the stem without allowing any excess molten gold to drip from the joint. Leaving the cross aside, he picked up the small golden band and with the same painstaking precision, attached a circle of diamonds, taking great care with each. The band was then fixed to the cross over the head of the crucified Christ. Finally, he soldered the red rubies to the body – one to each hand and another to the figure’s feet. Now almost complete, he waited for the cross to cool before carefully placing it in the workshop safe. Santini knew the German officer who had commissioned the work, would soon call to collect the cross. What he did not know was that his father would never part with his masterpiece … it was their heritage. It was the SCHIAPELLO CROSS! A maelstrom of international murder and intrigue, something quite new to Detective Sergeant Scobie Tierney of the Irish police. But when it comes knocking on his door, there’s no better man to take it on!show more
