I love a novel that manages to hit all my interests in one book—art, espionage, and historical fiction. Long Look into the Abyss by A.R. Homer is such a book. It concerns the Allies’ efforts to recover the Nazi’s stolen art just before and just after the end of World War II. The characters are well-drawn, with a female American officer who, with her sergeant driver, is hot on the tail of the stolen art; a German refugee who is on the run from the Gestapo, accompanied by her daughter and an escaped Polish slave laborer who has found a Raphael portrait stolen from a museum in Poland; and an SS Brigadefuhrer who has orders to destroy the art rather than let it fall into Allied hands. The plot races at breakneck speed through Southern Germany and brings all the characters together in the riveting conclusion.
