Book Description

20 Dec 2012
Noah had longed for adventure all his life, and he wasn’t about to let a stodgy history professor do him out of the story of his life with his complaining and heel-dragging. Robert had seen more than he cared to of adventure in his years in the European theater for the CIA. Now he had a nicely boring career as a news agency historical fact researcher, a brownstone full of family antiques, and a quiet, dignified life. He wasn’t about to let Noah Taylor, with his campy, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants ways, blow it for him. Robert Tate, 36, with a background of culture and family wealth, seems to be content using his doctorate in European history to do historical perspectives and analysis for The McNaughton News Corporation, a New York based international wire news service,. Formerly with the Special Forces in Afghanistan, and the CIA’s European theater, he left intrigue and danger behind and now keeps up his inherited townhouse and antiques with the salary from his job at McNaughton. Noah Taylor, 24, is the arts and fashion researcher at McNaughton News. He is self-confident, new-age, hip and seeking to get as far from his Mississippi white-trash roots as possible. He did whatever was necessary to put himself through school and how he looked for a way to break out of the research department into investigative journalism. He was out and proud and not afraid to express himself. These two very different characters are thrown together by McNaughton News to investigate the spectacular theft from a Kremlin museum of the last Imperial Easter egg, called the Abdication Egg, made by the famous House of Fabergé jewelers for the last Tsar of All the Russias, Nicholas II.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad plot, but can't say I liked the characters 14 Jun 2013

The plot for this story was OK, though wildly unbelievable. But the big problem for me was the characters. I didn't like them. Noah was every gay stereotype rolled into one ridiculous and obnoxious person, and Robert was the worst CIA agent ever. Ever. He stumbled through this mystery with all the grace of Stephanie Plum. I won't be looking for any more adventures from these two.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dynamic and Entertaining! 25 Jan 2013

When the Abdication Egg, the last jeweled Faberge Egg made by The House of Faberge for the last Tsar of Russia, Nicholas II, is stolen from a Russian museum, the story interests the McNaughton News Service, which sends senior researcher Dr. Robert Tate and youthful art expert Noah Taylor to uncover the real story. But their interest gets the attention of a group of deadly Russian investigators determined to recover the Egg, and the beautiful Marya, who has already committed murder to get the Egg.

Who stole the Egg and why, and what does Marya have to do with it? And what is straitlaced Robert Tate, Ph.D. and former CIA mastermind, going to do with a young art freak who sees the whole dangerous business as a lark that will get him promoted to his dream job? The two men quickly find themselves in a fight for their lives, not to mention an urge to give in to an unwilling attraction to each other that will come to naught if they don't manage to stay alive.

This book is a real page-turner, with sympathetic characters facing death and danger every time they turn around because that Egg turns out to contain the code to access a fortune -- once the question of who owns the Egg is solved, and someone is left alive to claim it.
