John Pearce

Author John Pearceabout this book: Treasure of Saint-Lazare is an international thriller. It reaches back to World War II, when a priceless Raphael painting that had been stolen by the Nazis disappeared in the chaos of war's end. More than sixty years later, the mystery comes to life once again when an old man is run down and killed by a car in Sarasota, FL, but moves quickly to Paris, where a Franco-American businessman is dragged unwillingly into the case but ends up seizing it as an opportunity to solve the murders of several members of his family -- and find his way back to the true love he thought he'd lost five years before. Reviews: "The best thing about Pearce's book is how absolutely readable it is." "The plot is credible and intriguing from the very beginning and the suspense remains until the end."

I devoted a lot of time to researching this book, even though I have lived (and live now, at least part of the year) in both of its main locales, Paris and Sarasota.

The origin of my interest in art looted by the Nazis goes back to my days as a journalist in Europe, where I edited magazines and wrote for the International Herald Tribune. I now spend part of each year in Paris, which makes it possible to give a realistic background to the Paris scenes. The realism and romanticism of Paris is recognized by several of the Amazon reviewers.
