Natalie Brandon has a secret.
She knows a 700-year-old Dante manuscript up for auction is a fake, but no one believes her because she was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child. To stop the auction, she enlists the help of her sister Beth, a history professor.
But when the forger’s scheme crumbles, he seeks revenge…because the sisters have cost him more than money. Natalie and Beth have just disrupted an even bigger plot – a web of lies spun over forty years and four countries, ensnaring a British baron, a Bolshoi ballerina, a Russian mobster, a hacker, and the seductive Soviet defector who ties them all together. Can Natalie save her sister and catch the forger…without turning the forces of an international conspiracy against them?
Travel back to 2007, five years before the events of The Romanov Legacy, and see how Natalie, Beth, Constantine, Viktor, Vadim, and Liliya choose the paths that led them to their fate.
The most dangerous enemy is the one closest to your heart.
The Dante Deception was awarded 2nd place in Authors.me's Operation:Thriller writing contest.
