Overview

Dr. Gerson Asher is a prominent New York surgeon and ex-Navy Seal who was raised as a boy in Argentina by his grandfather, Max. One evening, Gerson is caught off-guard by an unexpected call from his 80-year-old grandfather, Max Asher, whose voice is filled with panic as he announces he’ll be flying into New York from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The following morning, Gerson’s life is turned upside down when he sees his grandfather fatally stabbed by two thugs as he exits Kennedy Airport. Max carried in his pocket a letter with information that plunges Gerson into a perilous search, following mysterious clues his grandfather has left for him to decipher. A search that will lead him on a harrowing journey from the broad avenues of New York City to the back alleys of Buenos Aires on the trail of stolen European WW2 art treasures, wanted Nazi war criminals, and the killers of his grandfather. Reminiscent of such modern crime thriller classics as Frederick Forsyth’s “The Odessa File,” and William Goldman’s “Marathon Man,” Roberto Kusminsky, himself of Argentinean descent and a prominent surgeon from Charleston, West Virginia, has written a stunning debut novel about love, loyalty, and the depths of hell some men will transcend in order to meet evil face to face…and destroy it.

Editorial Reviews

Theodore Feit
"This debut novel exhibits all the characteristics of a well seasoned author. It is an exciting read and well worth the effort to devour it. Recommended."
-Theodore Feit, Midwest Book Review.
Steven M. Moore
"Kusminsky obviously knows his material, plots well and includes the right mix of suspense, action and sex to keep any Hollywood producer happy."
-Steven M. Moore, author of Soldiers of God.
Mary Lignor
"My very favorite author in this genre is Jack Higgins, but I must admit that after reading Counsel of the Wicked, Mr. Kusminksy is running a close second! He certainly seems to have done his research well. I hung on every page from first to last and was not surprised that he came up with an eye-opening ending."
-Mary Lignor, BookPleasures.com.
