Stolen Light by Claudia Riess

Stolen Light

The story of “Stolen Light” begins with the killing of a sugar plantation owner in Cuba during the revolution. Now, more than 50 years later, a young art-magazine writer and a more seasoned art historian team up for an academic endeavor. They wind up delving into the murder of the surviving daughter who had sought their under-the-radar help in recovering her father’s stolen artworks. The investigation takes them to London and Florence, where the mystery and their passion for each other unfold. *

Books are available on, Barnes& and through the author’s website.
The book is also sold at independent bookstores.
