A religious icon, thought to have been destroyed during World War II, reappears in contemporary New York in this debut thriller that blends faith, art, history and suspense. In a remote Greek village, Captain Elias and his guerrillas in the resistance are engaged in battle with the Nazis. A church burns to the ground in an act of betrayal, and several die trying to protect a religious icon hidden there. What happens that day lies shrouded in mystery until, sixty years later, the icon surfaces on the New York art market, generating keen - and possibly deadly - interest from a variety of interested parties, each wanting it for a different reason. The Icon is an accomplished first novel of adventure and intrigue set in both Nazi-occupied Greece and modern-day New York.
