Shortly after he was convicted of dodging the draft in World War I, Grover Cleveland Bergdoll asked the U.S. Army to temporarily release him from prison. He had buried a valuable cache of gold during the war, he claimed, and he wanted to recover it before someone else did. Bergdoll's subsequent escape would mark the start of a 20-year standoff with the American government. Although the case is largely forgotten today, Grover Cleveland Bergdoll was a household name for much of the early 20th century. He was the son of a wealthy German-American brewing family, an amateur race car driver, and a skilled aviator who trained with the Wright Brothers. After his draft evasion, he was captured at his stately mansion as his gun-toting mother tried to fend off the police. Bergdoll's escape overseas would prove to be a thorny issue in international politics. It resulted in a contentious investigation in Congress, where one witness was nearly shot by a representative. He was regularly pilloried by veterans' groups, and American servicemen twice tried to kidnap him. As Bergdoll's exile dragged on, he was left with a harsh choice: return to the country where he was a wanted man, or stay in Europe to face the perils of the Nazi dictatorship.

Petty Officer Oliver “Artful Dodger” Graham heads with the team to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic to apprehend the financier of their failed terrorist target Muhammad Angar Said. But on a routine recon of the city, he discovers a hooker that looks suspiciously like Mad Max’s baby sister, Anna Keegan. Once he follows her all hell breaks loose. Dodger has been trying with all his might to stay away from the tantalizing beauty. In the past he’d turned his life upside down for a woman and that left him alone and jobless, in the US once she cheated on him with another guy. Years later, the scars of that failed romance haunt him still. Now he’s more intent on getting to the bottom of this interesting intrigue while still trying to maintain the status quo. The trouble is Anna is always maddeningly unpredictable. Anna Keegan finds herself in some hot water in a foreign city without backup. After discovering an ominous plot that would have devastating consequences for the US, Anna must pull out all the stops to neutralize the threat. But on the way to diffusing the situation, she runs into overprotective Dodger and he insists on staying with her and helping her to clear her name. As they work to discover all the clues to eliminating the danger, they stumble onto an even bigger and more dire plan that will take them to major cities and across continents in a desperate attempt to save lives. Anna and Dodger fight their attraction in the midst of all the peril, but can they allow themselves to be overtaken by passion when so much is at stake?

The Artful Dodger faces his most dangerous adventure yet as he leaves Dickensian London and finds himself manning the barricades in defence of liberty, fraternity and larceny in the 1848 Paris uprising. For Dodger, life as a criminal kingpin is losing its allure. Leading a gang of petty thieves from the Seven Dials is not as easy as Fagin made it look and after a year in charge Jack Dawkins has been reduced to a shadow of the man who used to be the envy of every pickpocket in London. Opium-addicted and heavy-fingered, Dodger is fast becoming a laughing stock on his own patch until a chance encounter leads him to Paris and a job like nothing he's had before. In a city alive with rebellion, Dodger must avoid assassins, jilted lovers and revolutionaries, and rediscover his touch if he is to lift his most precious treasure yet. The third in the James Benmore's acclaimed series continuing the story of the Artful Dodger, this book confirms Jack Dawkins as one of the great fiction characters.

Who really knows how the art market works? Here, for the first time, art detective, veteran appraiser and international art expert Bernard Ewell opens the door and gives you a tour of the world’s most unregulated market, one unlike any other which does not even follow the rules of modern economics. There are actually two art markets, with one operating as if it was the other, while both depend on The Six Myths That Drive The Art Market. Perception is everything and pervasive secrecy is the unbreakable rule. The players, the con men and the larger than life personalities are better than the characters created by novelists. You’ll meet the crooks and their victims and realize that both are actually our creation. We all participate in the fraud and foolishness that props up an art market that buys and sells civilization’s greatest treasures and most horrible junk. Be prepared to put aside everything you think you know and have heard from art dealers and read in the press. The international auction houses, the big name galleries, superstar artists, and the museums are haunted by fakes and forgeries which collectors usually buy for all the wrong reasons. Arrogance or ignorance? It’s both. The art market is where the intent to deceive meets contributory negligence and willful ignorance and most of those who have been defrauded don’t even know it. This book will entertain you as it gives you the tools to more fully enjoy and safely buy art.
