The Da Vinci Deception

JACKET NOTES:  Murder and the Mona Lisa! They call themselves the Art Department: three experts hand picked by art connoisseur Jonas Kalem to create an audacious forgery that will rock the art world. Together they will fake lost manuscripts of Leonardo do Vinci, including early sketches of the Mona Lisa, which will command more than $100 million at auction.
If successful, Kalem's plan will bring him international fame and immense riches. But the Art Department makes headlines sooner than he wanted, with the murder of someone unlucky enough to unearth the scheme--which puts British Detective Superintendent Walter Deats on Kalem's trail. Deats's determination to solve the killing takes him around the world under an ever-darkening cloud of death, chasing through a serpentine maze of deception, betrayal, blackmail, and murder, toward an electrifying climax.
Jolting, tense, surprising, and musingly entertaining, The Da Vinci Deception is a breathtaking debut that establishes Thomas Swan in the top ranks of today's suspense authors.
