Pete Sawyer is a private eye of a different kind. The son of a World War II American pilot and a brave French resistance fighter, he grew up on both sides of the Atlantic–though he prefers his sun-dappled villa on the Riviera to most other places. He takes pleasure in a fine wine…and a good gun. His French name is Pierre-Ange, and it suits him. In English, it means Stone Angel.
Pete’s been hired by a wealthy American couple to locate their missing teenaged daughter. But when the detective tracks down Sarah Byrne’s most recent Paris address, he finds not the girl, but the bloody trail of a band of terrorists.
What’s the link between Sarah and the deadly group? And, more perplexing, what’s the link between the group and the aristocratic Lemaire family, whose fortune was made by a Champagne business to rival Pommery and Mumm?
Pete Sawyer must use all his charm and cunning to solve these problems–and prevent a national disaster….
