Chasing Mona Lisa
by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey
ABOUT THE BOOK: It is August 1944 and Paris is on the cusp of liberation. As the soldiers of the Third Reich flee the Allied advance, they ravage the country, stealing countless pieces of art. Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring will stop at nothing to claim the most valuable one of all, the Mona Lisa, as a post-war bargaining chip to get him to South America. Can Swiss OSS agents Gabi Mueller and Eric Hofstadler rescue DaVinci's masterpiece before it falls into German hands?
With nonstop action, Chasing Mona Lisa is sure to get readers' adrenaline pumping as they join the chase to save the most famous painting in the world. From war-ravaged Paris to a posh country chateau, the race is on--and the runners are playing for keeps.

MY REVIEW: In a book that definitely should be Hollywood bound, the authors deftly send us back to the Nazi German occupation of Paris during WWII. From the very beginning of the book we are kept on the edge of our seat during this adrenaline pumping story.
Through the mad rush to see who reaches the Mona Lisa first we meet both the ‘good guys’ and the ‘bad guys’ and there is never any problem deciding who to root for. This seriously was a book I hated to set aside and kept saying to myself “Just one more chapter and then I’ll……”
Another plus to this book was learning about the tremendous effort during the war to protect and preserve the great art classics. This is something I knew absolutely nothing about and it was so fascinating to me.
