"The Phoenix of Prague is a novel set in the darkly beautiful and storied city of Prague, a year after the Velvet Revolution. At issue in this novel of intrigue is a collection of fine art once held by the Czech dictator Ceaucescu. When paintings from his collection - presumed lost - begin showing up at auction, British intelligence sends Jan Capek back to his native Prague to trace their source." "Penetrating the heart of an anti-communist conspiracy that is mining such stolen treasures for cash, Jan comes face-to-face with their cunning, charismatic, and deadly leader. The course of his investigation sends him hunting through the labyrinth of centuries-old tunnels that underlie the city, bluffing his way into the criminals' confidence...and trying to get out again, alive."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
