About this author

John Pearce is a part-time Parisian but lives quite happily most of the the year in Sarasota, FL. He worked as a journalist in Washington and Europe, where he covered economics for the International Herald Tribune and edited a business magazine. After a business career in Sarasota, he spends his days working on his future books - a sequel he expects to publish later in 2014 and a prequel after that. For several months each year, he and his wife Jan live in Paris, walk its streets, and chase down interesting settings for future books and his blog, JohnPearceAuthor.com. They lived earlier in Frankfurt, Germany, which gave him valuable insights for several of the scenes in his sequel, whose working title is Last Stop: Paris.

I wanted to expand the story and the action, so I brainstormed with myself (it works) and recorded many, many ideas in Evernote, where I keep everything. Then I filter out the useless ones and write the good ones.(less)

The Resistance

I reviewed The Resistance by Peter Steiner some time ago, shortly after I attended his presentation at the American Library inParis. It’s a good book, and I hope he writesmore like it (this is his latest, although he published several earlier).


I was in Paris, my novelTreasure of Saint-Lazare was about to be published, and I was delighted to have the chance to talk to someone in the same busines...

“That name was a sadistic play on the Underground Railroad that smuggled American slaves north. The old Nazis set up their own version and used it mainly to move their people. They called it Die Spinne.”
John Pearce, Treasure of Saint-Lazare

“Dear Artie: “The young fellow has disappeared into a dead end. I think the long-necked bastard planned to wind up in Paris and sent him there but he may also have used the underground railroad. Ask your round-heeled contact. Maybe you can find more than I could. “Roy”
John Pearce, Treasure of Saint-Lazare
