When a false gold bar is discovered, US Treasury Agent Jay Ricci is sent on a mission to Scandinavia to find the remaining fifty tons of gold. But he's not the only one searching, and danger lurks at every turn. With the help of Deborah Goodman at the US Embassy and Alec Henning, an enigmatic figure with hidden power, Ricci must navigate a treacherous path. Will he uncover the truth behind the Evasive Gold? Get ready for a gripping and pulse-pounding adventure that will keep you guessing until the very end. Perfect for fans of indie books and those seeking an exciting and immersive read.

Publisher Description:

Evasive Gold is both a historical WWII novel and a present-day mystery seeking to reveal the past through a hunt for elusive clues from 75-80 years ago.
Two agents are each given a mission. One in 1940, and one in present-day New York. Evasive Gold follows both men – each in his own timeframe – until the final dramatic moment when their two paths converge.
In present-day New York, a false gold bar is discovered in the Federal Reserve Bank’s vault. Could the remaining fifty tons of the original party – supposedly smuggled out of Norway in 1940 – also be counterfeit? That gold cannot be tested in secret, so US Treasury Agent Jay Ricci is sent on a mission to Scandinavia: Find the gold.
But the secret has leaked, and someone else wants it badly. And Ricci is a fly in their ointment.
Eighty years earlier, Agent Peter Hagenmüller of Germany’s Abwehr Foreign Intelligence Service is stationed in Norway. He is given a mission: Follow the gold if the Norwegian resistance tries to smuggle it away.
In present-day Stockholm, Jay Ricci is flying blind and on his own except for two contacts: The smart and attractive Deborah Goodman at the US Embassy and Alec Henning, an American expat with an obscure past and a questionable reputation – and a hidden aura of power.
And Ricci needs all the help he can get.
