The Stolen by Tobsha Learner
  

Lovereading view...

A dual-time tale of wartime Germany and Switzerland in 1982 with a Madonna statuette at its core. In the Ukraine during the war a group of gypsies are rumoured to have the statue and a ruthless German goes in to acquire it. In Switzerland the son of an eminent watchmaker and noted scientist, specialising in metals, inadvertently becomes involved with the death of a gypsy shot outside his father’s office. This all links back to the war and the mystery of the Madonna. A time-slip adventure where the gypsy angle adds a nice slant.A good one.

Synopsis

The Stolen by Tobsha Learner

Zurich, 1983. A Roma gypsy lies dead in front of a smart watchmaker's window. His sacrifice will lead to the discovery of a remarkable treasure, kept hidden by the Nazis for decades. But this mysterious artefact is much more than it seems - and its power will not be contained...Widowed physicist Matthias von Holindt has been lost in his own world for far too long. But when his estranged father is implicated in the murder, Matthias is forced on a desperate hunt for the truth. Fighting against a secret, sinister cabal, he must race to save the artefact from their evil grasp. But the quest will have profound and devastating consequences for Matthias himself - and threaten those he loves the most. Heart-stopping adventure, rich history and a deep, hidden mystery - The Stolen is a compelling and hugely satisfying thriller from the bestselling author of Sphinx.
