By November 6, 2018

Staunch says:

“In this fast-paced and demanding literary novel, the reader must work to keep track of the twists and turns and the many players, none of whom are entirely truthful – including the fearless protagonist, Helena Marsh. A gripping thriller set against the rich post-war history of middle-Europe where fortunes were reversed through war, revolution and shifting political regimes and where the past itself cannot be trusted. Born in Budapest, Canadian writer Anna Porter generously shares her knowledge of time and place and impresses with detailed insights into the world of art history and appropriation, big money deals and the quest for restitution.”
