History - and Literature - Repeats Itself

As I delve a bit deeper in to the research aspect of my newest book, 'Lucifer's Lamp', I am appalled by what I'm finding.  How in the world could one person decree it was alright to take a person's possessions based upon their religion, orientation, culture, or political views?   And yet it happened, and right under the noses of the Free World.

If you've kept up with the news lately - and by that I mean the last few years - you know that attention has been directed to the recovery of treasure taken by the Nazis during the years preceding and during World War Two.  This travesty has been dramatized in film, covered in a myriad museum magazines, and romanticized in novels.  And  yes, I'm continuing the trend.  I'm taking it a bit further, however,  inserting small towns where most focus on the Vatican, and allowing the regular Joes (in my case, Louis Greywolf Bahe, a Navajo state mining inspector from Arizona) to play a part in the recovery.

'Legend', the first part of this story, is available online or in stores, from Amazon to Barnes and Noble, iTunes to Kobo.  Take a moment and check out Louis Bahe's part in this reverse plundering.  I think you'll like it.
