Tom Fairchild is a man with a past he can’t shake. He’s struggling to make it as a graphic artist, but his probation officer thinks he belongs in jail. Then millionaire Miami real estate developer Stuart Barlowe offers him fifty thousand dollars to travel to Italy with his daughter Allison, a map expert and Tom’s childhood love, to duplicate a rare Renaissance map. But Tom soon suspects that Barlowe wants a forgery, not a duplicate. He just doesn’t know why, and Allison isn’t talking. When people start turning up dead, and Tom and Allison realize they are being tailed, it quickly becomes clear that they have no one to trust but each other.

Quotes & Awards

    Houston Chronicle

  • “Parker delivers a fresh plot...[and] a surprising ending.”

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel

  • “A remarkable tale of international intrigue.”

    Miami New Times

  • “Engrossing…fresh and compelling.”


  • “Paul Garcia revels in the thuggishness of Parker’s Eastern European hit man, the whininess of her Florida millionaires, and the earnest, romantic nature of her hero, Tom Fairchild…The vocal distinctions are theatrical, lending drama to a novel of international intrigue.”
