Summary
Tasoula Hadjitofi was only a child when her homeland, Cyprus, was invaded. As bombs fell and soldiers marched through the streets, her mother stood guard, reminding her children to not be afraid--not of the bombs or anything else that may follow. They would always have their family and their faith. Soon thereafter, Tasoula found herself homeless and nation-less. A refugee. Decades later, she's a successful entrepreneur and the Honorary Consul of Cyprus in The Netherlands . Tasoula sets out on a quest to repatriate these artifacts. An immensely legally challenging and expensive undertaking, as provenance of icons are and other holy artifacts are easily manipulated by corrupt dealers and greedy auction houses. Taking on these "merchants of God" will test Tasoula's fortitude and threaten her safety, yet she feels this mission is her calling. In this book, she reveals her perilous road to "The Munich Case", the largest art trafficking sting in European history since WWII, which is filled with mind games, subterfuge, global politics, and a shady figure named Van Rijn, whose motives are never entirely clear
