9780007230402: The Gilded Seal

The most audacious heist in history is about to commence, and Tom Kirk is right in the middle of it…

Whilst investigating the theft of a stolen Da Vinci, reformed art thief Tom Kirk is confronted with the horrifying sight of a cat nailed to the wall where the painting once stood. He recognises the sign as a greeting from his old enemy Milo, and then finds out that a long time friend in Seville has been murdered.

Meanwhile, in New York, FBI agent Jennifer Browne has been asked to investigate a possible art fraud. The trail leads to an Iranian art dealer who denies all knowledge, but when a lawyer who he had dealings with is murdered, Jennifer knows she has stumbled across something very sinister.

Are the reappearance of Milo, the murder of Tom’s friend and the stolen Da Vinci connected? Are Tom and Jennifer's paths destined to cross again as they descend into a maelstrom of deadly betrayal?

'A story that harks back to the Nazis, Hitler and a legendary treasure. What more could you want? If there's a better thriller this year I would like to see it.' Jack Higgins, bestselling author of Without Mercy and The Eagle Has Landed

'An exciting, suspenseful and fast-paced novel'


'A carefully constructed tale straight out of the Dan Brown mould of thriller writing'
Sunday Sun

'The Double Eagle will leave you breathless, but never dizzy. Solid debut work'

'This would make the perfect Tom Cruise movie'
The Independent on Sunday

'A captivating, engrossing debut,…a fast-paced tale of international crime and skullduggery written with style and panache. Twining is a worthy successor to Forsyth, Follett, and Higgins. Highly recommended.' Christoper Reich

'This is an auspicious beginning for a fledgling series' Publishers Weekly

'Brilliantly written with numerous double crosses taking place, James Twining has created a delightful and thought-provoking protagonist. Along with deceit, shattered promises, and murder all going hand in hand The Double Eagle is certainly a pacy novel' Shots
