Jen Wetzmuller, daughter of his father's World War II colleague in Army Intelligence, arrives in Paris, bearing a letter she found after he father was run down by a car on the streets of Sarasota. Its clues take Eddie from his Paris home to Florida, where he works to solve the mystery, barely escaping with his life. Then it's back home to burrow into the darkest reaches of the German occupation in search of the treasure.
Along the way he and Jen restart the brief, fiercely passionate affair that he abandoned, to his regret, 20 years before Sarasota.
Most of all, Treasure of Saint-Lazare is a novel about Paris.

The best part of the book was its cover. ys Misspelt words, poor wording, irrelevant details, repeated concepts, Conducting paragraphs must be reread several times in order to understand. Proofread! Proofread, please! Obvious plot. Boring. Needs editing. Not a Clive Cussler. More of a comic book.

If you liked Monument Men this is another search for a lost painting . The search encompasses both the US Ann France. I enjoyed the novel but became confused a couple of times over the characters relationship s to each other. Reccomded.

Great story and plot. Characters were distinct and like able. I found it hard to connect to the rich details of European history but it certainly inspired me to learn more. Having recently visited Paris, I could clearly visualize the settings.
