"As Adam listens to the final bequest of his father's will, he knows he will at last learn the unspoken secret that shadowed the peaceful retirement of Colonel Scott and turned him from a WWI hero into a disgraced and broken man. But inside the yellowed envelope Adam finds a far more important secret. The path Adam has to follow leads him first to the innermost vault of a Swiss bank where his real inheritance lies-a priceless work of Russian art, a 14th-century icon, smuggled out of Russia by the last Czar and subsequently passed into the hands of a Nazi war criminal by a bizarre twist of fate. In following the path to clear his father's name, Adam has stumbled upon a revelation so explosive that it could forever change the balance of power between America and the Soviet Union."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
