Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982144342, Perfect Paperback)Dr. Gerson Asher is a prominent New York surgeon and ex-Navy Seal who was raised as a boy in Argentina by his grandfather, Max. One evening, Gerson is caught off-guard by an unexpected call from his 80-year-old grandfather, Max Asher, whose voice is filled with panic as he announces he’ll be flying into New York from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The following morning, Gerson’s life is turned upside down when he sees his grandfather fatally stabbed by two thugs as he exits Kennedy Airport. Max carried in his pocket a letter with information that plunges Gerson into a perilous search, following mysterious clues his grandfather has left for him to decipher. A search that will lead him on a harrowing journey from the broad avenues of New York City to the back alleys of Buenos Aires on the trail of stolen European WW2 art treasures, wanted Nazi war criminals, and the killers of his grandfather. Reminiscent of such modern crime thriller classics as Frederick Forsyth’s “The Odessa File,” and William Goldman’s “Marathon Man,” Roberto Kusminsky, himself of Argentinean descent and a prominent surgeon from Charleston, West Virginia, has written a stunning debut novel about love, loyalty, and the depths of hell some men will transcend in order to meet evil face to face…and destroy it.

During and after WWII, Peron allowed thousands of fleeing Nazis to find refuge in Argentina. U-boats were sighted near coastal towns, and priceless works of art stolen from European victims of war appeared surreptitiously in Buenos Aires auction houses. Dr. Gerson Asher, a surgeon with a past, and Nicole, a beautiful geneticist, plunge into a deadly cat-and-mouse chase with a ruthless art dealer who is intent on recovering treasures looted by the Nazis and hidden in South America decades earlier. Gerson follows cryptic clues left by Max, his grandfather, who is murdered just before he can tell Gerson the shocking discovery he's made. The vertiginous chase becomes increasingly treacherous as Gerson and Nicole try to evade the members of an organization bent on recovering what they believe to be rightfully theirs . . .
