It is August 1944 and Paris is on the cusp of liberation. As the soldiers of the Third Reich flee the Allied advance, they ravage the country, stealing countless pieces of art. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring will stop at nothing to claim the most valuable one of all, the Mona Lisa, as a post-war bargaining chip to get him to South America. Can Swiss OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler rescue DaVinci’s masterpiece before it falls into German hands?

With nonstop action, Chasing Mona Lisa is sure to get readers’ adrenaline pumping as they join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged Paris to a posh country chateau, the race is on–and the runners are playing for keeps.

My Review:
Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey has done it again! They co-wrote The Swiss Courier together and wow! I was blown away then and I’m once again blown away by their ability to write a smooth flowing, complex, edge of your seat novel once again. I loved The Swiss Courier, and I LOVED Chasing Mona Lisa!

Eric and Gabi, Swiss spies, are back and in full swing of things as they taken on another fast-paced thrilling case….this time, chasing down the infamous Mona Lisa painting during the liberation of France. Instantly, you’re transported to Erik and Gabi’s side. You’re in the middle of the fast past thrills and the rush of adrenaline as you learn things about the art work being stolen…and just who is behind it all.

Eric and Gabi’s skills are amazing as they work together to right the wrongs. With secrets uncovered, twists and turns among every page, and characters that jump from the pages in this awesome WWII novel, this is a novel that will leave you feeling breathless in the end.

I definitely recommend this novel. Rich in complexity and amazing historical detail, this novel is worthy of so much more than just 5 Books! Eric and Gabi aren’t ones to be missed on their missions, that’s for sure! The ending of this story is a whopper of unexpectedness and I can’t wait to see if these two incredibly amazing authors collaborate once again to bring their fans another amazing Swiss spy novel! INCREDIBLETASTIC work, Ms. Goyer and Mr. Yorkey!

  1. Molly, thanks so much for the enthusiastic review. Tricia and I love to read how reviewers like you “get it” and love a page-turning thriller like “Chasing Mona Lisa.” We didn’t want the action to stop for one page, but we also wanted to give the reader a flavor for what life was like in Paris in August 1944. Thanks again for being such a close reader . . . and we’re glad you liked the ending. Mike Yorkey, co-author of “Chasing Mona Lisa.”
