Summary
In this powerful memoir, Tasoula Hadjitofi reveals her perilous journey orchestrating 'The Munich Case'―one of the largest European art trafficking stings since WWII. With the Bavarian police in place, the Cypriots on their way, seventy under-cover agents bust into the Munich apartment of a notorious Turkish smuggler suspected of holding looted antiquities. Tasoula places everything on the line to repatriate her country's sacred treasures, unaware that treachery lies in the shadow of her success
Summary
Outraged after being offered a chance to buy stolen, sacred artifacts taken from her homeland of Cyprus during the war, the author begins a quest to obtain and restore these icons of her childhood and homeland
